Ever see someone pour motor oil into a storm sewer? Use the nearest ditch to dispose of grass clippings with the leaf blower? Did you ever wonder where it all ends up? Galveston Bay. Substances that make their way into the City of Houston and Harris County storm water drainage system flow directly into our bayous, rivers and ultimately, into the Bay. If storm water is contaminated by contact with pollutants, then that's how it stays. Storm water receives no treatment.
This Web site will help you learn what you can do to keep our water clean for generations to come.
