What is stormwater runoff?
Stormwater occurs naturally when it rains or snows. Water flowing off your yard, sidewalk or street flows down to the curb and into the nearest storm drain or ditch. From there, it flows into the vast network of underground pipes and tunnels that make up the storm drain system and is carried to Cat Creek or Dog Creek. Contrary to popular belief, stormwater runoff does not go to the Wastewater Treatment Plant.
