CLEAN WATER. CLEAN CHOICE.
Urban Stormwater runoff is a serious concern because stormwater runoff may be contaminated with pesticides, fertilizers, animal droppings, trash, food wastes, automotive by-products and other toxic substances that are part of the urban environment. Stormwater runoff that flows over streets, parking lots, construction sites and industrial facilities can carry these pollutants through the stormwater drainage system directly into local bayous, channels and ditches. This contamination diminishes the value of our natural resources.
