Stormwater
Stormwater is a term used to describe water that originates during precipitation events. Stormwater that does not soak into the ground becomes surface runoff which follows into waterways either directly or indirectly trough stormwater pipes and outlets. All stormwater ends up untreated in your local waterway.
