Storm Water Managment
One of the EPA's goals is to educate residents about stormwater and its affects on our water systems. Stormwater runoff is any water from rain, melted snow, or outdoor home useage that is not absorbed into the ground. The water flows over impervious surfaces (paved streets, driveways, parking lots, rooftops) collecting debris, chemicals, sediment or other pollutants that could adversely affect the quality of our water, if left untreated. Below are articles that will assist you in doing your part to keep our water clean!
