Stormwater Runoff Management
Welcome to the Unified Government's Stormwater Management Program. At this site you will be able to learn what you need to know about stormwater management and how you can make a difference in our very own community.

So, what exactly is stormwater runoff?  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.  The Unified Government's stormwater program mitigates this impact.
