February: Stormwater Management

This month, the City of Grand Island will be posting a quick overview of how we comply with federal Stormwater Management regulations. If you would like more information please go to www.Grand-Island.com

Runoff = water that can’t soak into the ground. This water flows across rooftops, pavement, bare soil, and sloped lawns. As it flows it picks up sand, pesticides, bacteria, oils, metals, and solvents and carries these things directly into the storm drain. Polluted runoff is not treated before it reaches the river. This is the same river where we swim, hunt, fish, and play. To find out what you can do to keep our lakes and rivers clean, go here: http://bit.ly/3aRYfBd
