When rain falls on hard surfaces like roads, parking lots, and roofs, it creates stormwater runoff. As it travels, runoff picks up pollutants like pet waste, yard clippings (and any pesticides or fertilizers in the clippings), motor oil, and exposed dirt. Once that polluted water goes down a storm drain, it flows directly to the nearest creek or stream, harming wildlife and water quality. But there are things we can all do to help right from our own backyards! Leads the way, be STORMWATER SMART!
