All these life forms depend on clean water for their existence
Parking lots contribute largely to storm water pollution. Mainly because of sand, dirt, oil and other chemicals from cars is washed off the parking lot and into a drain after a rain or melting snow.

Under our permit, fleet vehicle washing is a non-stormwater discharge and is allowed to drain into the storm system.
The storm sewer system drains directly into the sanitary sewer system.
Used motor oil is the number one pollution source for our streams and rivers.
Stormwater is natural and harmless because it consists of just rain water and melting snow.
Clean water is everyone's responsibility.
6. FALSE - The purpose of the City's storm drain system is to remove water quickly from our streets and parking lots to prevent flooding. The storm drain system empties directly into the closest stream or creek.
7. FALSE - Though motor oil is a serious source of pollution to area waterways (one quart can contaminate 250,000 gallons of water!), sediment is the #1 source of pollution to our rivers and streams.
8. FALSE – Rain and snow melt by itself are natural and harmless. But what they can pick up as they flow over impervious surfaces is not so harmless.
