Stormwater is the water that runs off your house roof, driveway and sidewalk into the street collection system. This conveyance of water prevents flooding in your home when properly graded and drained away. As the City develops the places for stormwater to naturally drain becomes limited, stormwater will collect in larger amounts in the City's collection system at a faster rate causing flash flooding. This is why you see detention ponds, storm drains and other features to collect, retain, drain or allow stormwater to flow. It is everyone's duty to reduce the amount of run off and reduce the pollution that the stormwater run off carries.
