Why should I, as the business owner or employee, care
Poor stormwater management practices at commercial businesses can introduce contaminants like oil and grease, chemicals, heavy metals, pesticides, fertilizers, and organic materials into the stormwater system. Because stormwater is not treated at a wastewater treatment plant like sewage is, these contaminants may end up directly in our surrounding creeks, rivers, and marshes. It is important to minimize your company's impact on water quality in our community by educating yourself and your employees on a series of best management practices (BMPs) they can use in the workplace.
