Follow the flow from your house to your neighborhood creek

Stormwater pollution comes from many sources. Rain or over-watering can carry pollutants like waste oil, pesticides, paint, and pet waste down the gutter and into a storm drain. Unlike sinks and toilets, storm drains flow directly to creeks and streams. Pollutants are carried into our waterways without treatment. This contaminates the water we drink and play in, and can also harm wildlife.
