Stormwater Education for Homeowners

General Information


Pollutants commonly found in stormwater include:
  • Dirt
  • Fertilizers
  • Grass Clippings
  • Herbicides
  • Oil



  • Pesticides
  • Pet Waste
  • Soaps
  • Trash
These pollutants degrade the quality of surface water and drinking water; damage the habitat of fish, plants and animals; and can affect recreational uses of bodies of water by making them unsafe for wading, swimming, boating and fishing.

Stormwater pollution can be controlled if everyone plays a part in preventing these substances from entering the storm drain inlets in the streets where they live and work.
