Storm water is comprised of rain, snowmelt, and irrigation runoff that flows across surfaces such as rooftops, driveways, streets, and parking lots. As storm water flows across these surfaces it collects and carries sediment, oil, grease, nitrogen, phosphorus, leaves, grass clippings, and other pollutants into the storm drain system and then untreated, into the nearest water body. Because storm water drainage systems provide NO treatment, preventing storm water contamination is crucial to protect water quality, environmental health, and local ecosystems.
Clean wetlands and healthy streams are important to Kaysville City. Residents can help keep storm water clean by doing a few simple things:
- Sweep up grass clippings, leaves, and landscaping debris instead of washing them down the gutter
- Dispose of chemicals, cleaners, oils and hazardous waste properly
- Fix vehicle leaks and clean up spills immediately
- Avoid over application of fertilizers and pesticides
- Keep trash can lids secure
- Wash vehicles at a commercial car wash, or on the lawn
- Never discharge chlorinated pool water into the storm drain system, instead arrange with the sewer district to discharge into the sanitary sewer
Remember: We all live downstream!
