Why should I care?
Stormwater picks up and carries all the pollutants it collects along the way. Since it is untreated, these pollutants flow directly into our creeks or tributaries, and could create water quality problems. Some aquatic organisms are very sensitive to pollution and can be harmed. These organisms are, in turn, food for bigger animals, and the cycle goes on. If the food at the bottom of the food chain is disrupted, it can have long reaching effects on plants and animals in our area.
