Stormwater is the water from rain, snow and sleet that travels down our gutters into the storm drain. Stormwater starts off clean. Stormwater flows DIRECTLY into our rivers, lakes and streams. It is almost never treated. So everything stormwater collects from the land surface, roadways, sidewalks, parking lots, construction sites, business parks, etc., is carried to gutters, stormdrains, canals, drainageways, and finally ends up in our local rivers and streams ~ UNTREATED! It is estimated that more than one-half of the pollution in our nations waterways comes from stormwater runoff.
Do you know how to prevent Storm Water Pollution?
Storm waters flow directly to the Virgin River with NO treatment. Degradation of storm water is a serious problem for wildlife dependent on our waterways and for the people who live near streams or use them for recreation.
The following are some common sources of contaminates in storm runoff:
- Spilled oil, fuel and fluids from vehicles and heavy equipment
- Construction silt and debris
- Landscape runoff containing pesticides or weed killers
- Materials such as paint products that people pour or spill into a street or storm drain
