Stormwater and YOU

Have you ever watched the rainwater running off your driveway or down your street? Do you know where that water is going? Pollution from stormwater runoff is the #1 health threat to our waterways. Every time it rains, pollution washes off your property and starts its journey through the watershed to the James River and eventually to the Chesapeake Bay.
