What is Stormwater?
Stormwater is water that originates from rainfall or snowmelt. Stormwater that does not soak into the ground (infiltrate) due to impervious surfaces such as roofs, compacted lawns, streets, and parking lots becomes stormwater runoff. Stormwater runoff can pick up pollutants such as sediment, oil, pesticides, and nutrients that adversely affect water quality. Stormwater runoff is carried untreated by curbs, open drainage ways, and storm sewers directly into local streams and rivers. Stormwater management aims to both reduce the quantity and improve the quality of stormwater runoff.
