The goal of the Storm Water Program is to reduce or eliminate pollutants in storm water. Storm water discharges are generated by runoff from land and impervious areas such as paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops, during rainfall and snowmelt events. Storm water discharges often contain pollutants in quantities that could adversely affect water quality.
