Stormwater      Central District Highlights

To CD Home >SLERP>

Debra Laisure PE, Manager

 

Stormwater is rainwater.  It's rainwater and anything the rainwater touches.  Rain that falls on the roof of your house, collects on paved areas like driveways, and roads, or runs off your yard is carried away through a system of pipes usually into lakes, streams, oceans and estuaries.

 

Never put anything into a storm drain.  These drain into our lakes, streams and surface water.   

 

There are three main types of Stormwater Pollution:

  • Litter, such as cigarette butts, cans, paper or plastic bags
  • Chemical pollution, such as detergents, oil, fertilizers and pesticides
  • 'Natural' pollution, such as leaves, garden clippings or animal droppings.
