One gallon of oil in the storm drain can pollute up to one million gallons of storm water.
Low-impact development (LID) is an approach to managing stormwater runoff as part of green infrastructure. LID emphasizes conservation and use of on-site natural features to protect water quality. Green infrastructure reduces and treats stormwater at its source while delivering environmental, social and economic benefits.
All cities must rely on its citizens to minimize their own impacts on storm water quality and to help maintain healthy waterways. You may want to get involved in a watershed community group, participate in cleanup events, recycle, and read our brochures on storm water pollution prevention.
