Stormwater is urban runoff water that has picked up pollutants as it flows through the storm drain system. Unlike sewage, which goes to treatment plants to remove toxins, urban runoff flows untreated through the storm drain system and directly into our local water bodies.

By doing our part to keep our area clean and safe, we can stop the adverse impact that stormwater pollution has on marine life and our environment.
