STORMWATER POLLUTION—WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Stormwater pollution is caused by the daily activities of people everywhere. Rainwater and snowmelt run off streets, lawns, farms, and construction and industrial sites and pick up dirt, fertilizers, pesticides, oil and grease, and many other pollutants on the way to our rivers, lakes, and streams. Stormwater runoff is our most common cause of water pollution and one of the most difficult to control. Stormwater pollution is everyone’s responsibility every day.
