Why is stormwater runoff a problem?
Stormwater or runoff can pick up all kinds of debris, such as chemicals, dirt, liter and many other pollutants as it flows through the stormwater system or directly into a body of water like the neighbor pond or stream. After it enters the stormwater system it is discharged untreated into the bodies of water, the same water that’s used for drinking, swimming and fishing.
