Stormwater Pollution Prevention

Stormwater Pollution Prevention

In open fields, woods and wetlands, most rain is absorbed by the soil or is taken up by plants and trees. In developed areas, rain that falls on roofs, drives, parking lots and streets is not absorbed. Instead, it travels down roadways, settles in gutters and ditches, and flows through storm drains to finally end up in our rivers, lakes, and wetlands. Rainwater that enters a surface water body, by flowing either overland or through a storm sewer system, is called stormwater or stormwater runoff. Stormwater runoff is one of the leading causes of pollution in rivers and lakes. Identifying sources of stormwater pollution and keeping them from coming in contact with runoff is one of the best and most economical ways of protecting the quality of our waters. This presentation will tell you more about stormwater pollution and how to prevent it.
