Stormwater is water from rain or melting snow that does not soak into the ground. It flows from rooftops, over paved areas, bare soil, and sloped lawns. As it flows, stormwater runoff collects and transports soil, animal waste, salt, pesticides, fertilizers, oil and grease, debris and other potential pollutants. The goal of the Stormwater Management Program (SWMP) is to identify existing resources, develop programs to reduce the negative impacts of stormwater pollution, protect our waterways and enhance our quality of life.

Draining Swimming Pool Water

Chlorinated water should not be discharged into storm drains or the sewer system. Drain the pool water onto your yard first. This allows time for the chlorine to evaporate. Do not drain pool water onto City owned property or your  neighbors' yards.
