Storm Water

Storm water is any water that originates from a storm or precipitation, whether it be rain, snow, sleet, hail, or ice. Storm water can also relate to snow or ice melt, or to flooding following torrential rain events. Storm water often percolates into the ground where it recharges groundwater aquifers. This water, prior to percolation or treatment, contains minerals, dirt, grit, grime, oil and other contaminants, so sewer systems aim to capture this water and through use of collections systems either treat it directly or distribute it to a local water way.
