When it rains, stormwater runs from rooftops, streets, parking lots, yards, and even wooded areas which ultimately discharges into rivers, streams, ponds, and other water bodies. Stormwater also is formed from melting snow. Depending on what the stormwater passes over, different pollutants, debris, and sediments are collected and discharge into the waterbodies with the stormwater. These pollutants can have an adverse effect on the water bodies. As a resident, you can take small steps to help reduce the impact pollutants have on our water bodies.
