Storm water : Is water that originates during precipitation events. Such as rain, snow, hail, ect.. Stormwater that does not soak into the ground becomes surface run off. This water either flows directly into surface waterways (creeks, lakes) or is channeled into storm drains, and ditches which eventually carries the water into water ways that discharge into rivers and lakes where we get our drinking water. This water is entering our streams and lakes untreated; therefore we need to take measures to prevent this water from getting contaminated.

It is the goal of this department to maintain the cities stormwater permit in compliance with all local, state and federal laws, and to keep our waters of the state safe and clean for generations to come.

Common contaminates include but are not limited to:

        Fertilizers, pesticides, fluids from leaky cars and equipment, sediments from construction and exposed dirt, litter and debris, pet waste
