What is stormwater?
Stormwater is rain or melting snow that runs over the land. In nature, most stormwater soaks into the ground where it falls. Excess stormwater moves its way to the nearest river, lake, or wetland. These natural systems provide water storage and prevent flooding. The amount of stormwater increases with more urbanization.
