When it rains, stormwater flows over pavements and other surfaces, picking up pollutants such as debris, vehicle spills, animal waste, fertilizers, and chemicals. These pollutants are carried in runoff from the land surface to storm sewers and eventually local rivers and streams without being treated. Effective stormwater management starts by controlling runoff at the source, at our homes and properties. In the unforeseen circumstance that you witness stormwater pollution, please report the concern to the Town at www.erieco.gov/1815/stormwater. Together we can protect our waterways!
