What is stormwater pollution?
Storm drains are intended to take rainwater straight to the rivers and lake. Rainwater or even runoff from sprinklers or hoses picks up and carries contaminants such as litter, animal waste, automobile fluids, fertilizers, and pesticides into the storm drains and pollutes the city's waterways, creating health risks for children, killing aquatic life, and contributing to localized beach closures.
