What is Storm Water?

Storm water is the runoff from precipitation (rain or snow melt) that is not absorbed into the ground and flows over land surfaces entering our lakes and streams. As the water travels across land it collects debris, sediment, yard waste, engine oils, lawn fertilizers, herbicides, and other pollutants that negatively impact our lakes, streams and drinking water.
