What is storm water runoff?
Storm water runoff is water that flows after a rainfall. During rainstorms, water drains off driveways, parking lots and streets picking up pollutants while flowing to the storm sewer system. Once storm water enters the storm sewer system of inlets, pipes or channels, it flows downstream to the nearest creek, lake or river.
