How to prevent water and stormwater pollution
Stormwater does not sink into the ground, but comes from rains or melting snow. As it flows over land, it picks up pollutants that are then deposited, untreated, into streams and rivers.
Polluted stormwater can harm the environment, threatening wildlife, food sources and recreation.
Stormwater pollution can be prevented or reduced in a variety of ways, including by going to the carwash rather than washing your car by hand, picking up trash, keeping drains and gutters clear, and cleaning up after pets.
