Public Involvement/Public Education
Storm water runoff has been a source of great concern for many years. It can pollute lakes and streams. As a result, the 1987 amendments to the Clean Water Act required the United States EPA to address storm water runoff.
Storm water runoff is rain water or melted snow that runs off the land and enters lakes, rivers, streams, and ponds.
As part of this initiative, to keep our water clean, Euclid Creek Watershed will provide tips that will inform and educate our residents in storm water management.
