Storm Drain
Storm Drain  

When water falls to the earth as rain, snow or ice; most of it seeps into the ground.  If the ground is saturated, frozen, or has a road, sidewalk or paved surface the water flows over  land creating what is called stormwater runoff. This stormwater runoff may carry off soil, pet waste, pesticides, fertilizers, oil, litter, and other pollutants into storm drains and it flows directly into local streams, rivers and lakes without treatment.
