Storm Drain Information

Only Rain Down the Drain! 
While many of us think first of industries dumping chemicals as the source of water pollution, the truth is our water can also be harmed by things that we do every day at our homes. When it rains, water washes over lawns, sidewalks, and streets. In addition to litter, this water picks up chemicals found in lawn fertilizers, bacteria found in pet waste, and oil from cars. This polluted water then enters roadside ditches and the storm drains found in our streets, and large pipes connect the storm drains to the closest lake or stream.

SEMCOG's Protect our Waterways Web-site offers good information on what citizens need to know and how they can help protect this great natural resource.
