STORMWATER

A watershed is the area of land that drains to a common body of water. Water from rain and snow falls on the land surface and then drains or seeps into a wetland, marsh, stream, river, lake or into the groundwater. Water always runs to the lowest point in a watershed. Some water soaks into the ground, where it becomes groundwater. Other water flows across fields, forests, streets, parking lots and lawns before it flows into streams, rivers, lakes and estuaries. This water is called stormwater runoff. Watersheds are habitats for plants and animals and are places for people to live, work and play. We depend on water within our watersheds to supply drinking water and water for the food we eat.  When stormwater flows across the land, it picks up eroded soil, leaves, oil, fertilizers, pesticides and anything else in its way. Sediment and chemicals can pollute the river, stream or lake where the water ends up. The health of a river basin is affected by the people living within its borders and the choices they make every day. People can take action to reduce the pollution that ends up in stormwater.  Building ponds and wetlands helps reduce the amount of stormwater that runs off, which can reduce flooding. Other actions, like using rain barrels and preventing erosion, can conserve water that may be needed in a drought.

How Can  YOU  Help Stokesdale

Make a Difference and Protect

Our Streams & Water Supply?

1.  Wash your car on the grass or gravel instead of the street or driveway.  Better yet, take it to a car wash that recycles water. 

2.  Keep your car checked for any kind of leaks, including motor oil, brake fluid and anti-freeze.

3.  Dispose of used auto fluids and batteries at designated drop-off or recycling locations.

4.  Don't fertilize your lawn unless it needs it. 

5. Use pesticides sparingly and according to label directions.  Consider avoiding their use altogether. 

6.  Compost or mulch yard waste.

7.  Use a rain barrel or cistern to collect rainwater for use during dry weather.

8.  Recycle or properly dispose of household products that contain chemicals, , insecticides, pesticides, paint and solvents.  Never pour them onto the ground.

9.  Never throw trash on the road, including cigarette butts.

10.  Clean up pet waste.  Bacteria, parasites and viruses found in pet waste can be harmful to water quality and human health.
