About Stormwater & Green Infrastructure

    Stormwater refers to runoff from land and impervious areas such as paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops during rainfall and snow events without the benefit of treatment. Stormwater discharges are a concern because they sometimes contain pollutants in quantities that could adversely affect water quality.  Many municipalities control stormwater discharges through best management practices which include green infrastructure and low impact development.
