Collectively, the draining water is called storm water runoff and is a concern to us in commercial and industrial sites as well as your neighborhood because of the pollutants it carries.
Where Does This Water Go?A common assumption is the water that heads down the storm drains flows into a treatment plant. Not so! Unlike waste water that is treated, storm water does not go through any treatment process. Storm drains transport storm water to the nearest stream, creek, lake or other waterway.
Water carries whatever it can with it – trash, leaves, chemical residue. With hundreds of storm drains around town, storm water is a major polluter. Although each storm drain contributes only a small number of pollutants, when added together, pollution concentrations are pretty high.
