Stormwater Management

Stormwater Runoff
Stormwater runoff is produced when precipitation events flows over land or other impenetrable surfaces and does not permeate into the ground. As the runoff flows over the land or impenetrable surfaces (paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops), it accumulates debris, chemicals, sediment or other pollutants that could adversely affect water quality if the runoff is expelled untreated. The primary method to control storm water discharges is the use of best management practices (BMPs). In addition, most storm water discharges are considered point sources and require coverage under an National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit.
