What is a Stormwater House Call?
The Stormwater House Call is a free program created to assist homeowners in assessing their properties for ways to better manage stormwater through Best Management Practices. These can be as simple as reducing pesticide use to installing rain barrels, rain gardens and riparian buffers.
Stormwater pollution is the uncontrolled runoff of rainwater from hard surfaces such as roofs, driveways, roadways, parking lots and even lawn areas. This water enters our storm sewer system where it is discharged untreated to our local creeks contributing to impairment.
