Stormwater is the water that runs over land, streets, parking lots, sidewalks, and driveways after a rain or snowmelt instead of soaking into the ground.
There is more to stormwater than storm drains. The story doesn't end there - stormwater finds it's way into our streams, rivers, and drinking water.
Entire business districts have been wiped out thanks to unregulated stormwater. The economic cost of unchecked stormwater is growing.
Understanding what you can do as a homeowner to manage stormwater is the first step in protecting your property value and your family.
