It’s about protecting our future.
Pennsylvania plays host to 19,000 miles of unhealthy streams, lakes, and rivers.
Stormwater, the water runoff from rain or melting snow, transports pollutants into local storm sewer systems and ultimately into our local waterways.
And the pollutants don’t just come from the rain itself. Nor are industrial sites all to blame. Dirt and fertilizer from your lawn, oil from your car, pesticides, cigarette butts, and paint – we’re all responsible for what flows into the storm sewer drains and systems, and ultimately into our local rivers.
Each of us can make a difference in keeping our waterways healthier, which also makes it easier to treat our drinking water. Watch this quick video to find out more!
