Stormwater Management

Stormwater runoff is rainfall that flows over the surface and is not able to soak into the ground. It is created when it rains on areas such as streets, parking lots, sports fields, and rooftops.

The stormwater runoff is directed into pipes and drains that carry it, along with any pollutants, directly into the Pithlaschascotee River and the Gulf of Mexico!

We strive to keep pollutants out, but we need your help!

Pollutants to look out for include, but are not limited to:

    • Motor Oils / Coolants Metals

    • Grease

    • Fertilizers / Pesticides

    • Pet Waste

    • Car and Equipment Soaps

    • Tobacco Spit
