WHAT IS STORMWATER POLLUTION?
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.
Anything thrown, swept or poured into the street, gutter or a catch basin–the curbside openings that lead into the storm drain system–can flow into our channels, rivers and eventually to the ocean. 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.
