Storm Water Runoff

Storm water that cannot infiltrate asphalt, concrete, and other paved or compacted surfaces will runoff to local waterways, taking everything on those surfaces along with it. Storm water runoff pollution contains chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, bacteria, road salt, engine fluids, eroded soils, and debris, and creates 30% of all water quality impairments in the Schuylkill Watershed.
