Stormwater

 What is Stormwater?

Where stormwater goesWhen it rains, impervious surfaces such as rooftops, driveways and roads prevent water from being absorbed into the ground. The portion of water that is not absorbed into the ground is what is known as stormwater runoff. This water in motion picks up and carries a wide variety of pollutants and litter, which flow into our storm drains, and eventually empty directly into our waterways. Unlike household wastewater, stormwater is not treated. That means the everyday pollution that we all contribute has a direct impact on our local water quality. 

 

 

 *The City of High Point offers many volunteer opportunities such as, Adopt A Stream, Storm Drain Marking, and Public Speaking. Please visit our Volunteer Opportunities page for more information on how to improve our streams and waterways.
