Stormwater runoff and snow melt pick up chemicals, bacteria, sediment, and debris from roads, lawns, construction sites, industrial facilities, etc.... This polluted runoff flows to storm sewers and directly to rivers, lakes and streams. Urban areas have been expanding and more vegetated ground has been covered by pavement and other impervious surfaces which has lead to the increase in velocity of stormwater runoff. The increase in velocity of stormwater runoff has been shown to increase surface water temperatures and erode natural drainage channels. Ultimately, all these factors combine to damage aquatic habitat which in turn diminishes the capacity for water bodies to support our recreation practices and water supplies.

The intent of the stormwater discharge program is to minimize the amount of pollutants in stormwater runoff to improve water quality. Most of the ways we prevent stormwater pollution are through the use of best management practices.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency provides a great deal of information on stormwater discharges.
