When rain water runs off it carries everyday pollutants directly to creeks and streams, such as vehicle fluids, excess lawn chemicals and fertilizers, detergents, construction site runoff and pet waste. Stormwater runoff quantity and quality are important to our environment and our own drinking water. There are many ways to help prevent pollutants from running off into our streams and rivers. It’s a problem we can help prevent.
