Stormwater Runoff- Keep It Clean

The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II is a program required in Stark County by the Environmental Protection Agency in an attempt to protect our water supply. Stormwater runoff is rain or snowmelt that flows over the ground. As it flows, it can pick up debris, chemicals, dirt, and other pollutants contaminating our water. Anything that enters a storm sewer is discharged untreated into waterbodies that we use for drinking, fishing, and swimming. Only 1% of the Earth’s water supply is usable drinkable water. With the limited supply available, we must conserve and protect our water.
