Stormwater is water that runs off private property from construction, car washing, lawn watering, and even rainwater that ends up in drain inlets throughout the City. Stormwater itself is not harmful, but the pesticides and fertilizers from lawns, roadway motor oil, and trash and yard debris are all potentially harmful to our environment.
Storm water that is polluted can harm  sh, wildlife, plants and the natural environment we enjoy. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandates that all State and municipalities have programs in place to advise the public
of the hazards of yard waste and to assemble  nes for placing or blowing yard waste into the streets and water ways.
Yard waste washed into storm drains contributes heavily to street  ooding and blocks drain inlets, potentially clogging underground storm drain pipes. All water runoff typically ends up in nearby waterways and creeks. Homeowners or their respective lawn maintenance personnel should never blow grass clippings, leaves, or other yard debris into the street area. Rather, yard clippings and waste should be mulched into your yard area or bagged and placed for trash pickup. Thank you in advance for keeping the City streets and drains clear of yard debris and for assisting in the protection of the environment.
