Stormwater originates from rainfall and other precipitation that runs off of surfaces all over the City - rooftops, streets, lawns, etc. Stormwater makes its way into natural water sources and takes everything from City surfaces with it to these areas. 

Car Washing

When you wash your car on a compacted surface, the runoff containing soap, heavy metals, road grime, greases, and oils can enter the storm drains. Unlike sanitary drains, storm drains usually run directly into creeks, ponds, and lakes. Use a commercial car wash facility or find a grassy area at home to soak up the runoff. Protect our area's natural water resources! 

Maintenance
Proper maintenance is crucial to keep the City's stormwater drainage facilities functioning. Learn how you can help maintain the stormwater infrastructure.
