In the U.S., the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is charged with regulating stormwater pursuant to the Clean Water Act (CWA). In 2016, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEPI labeled approximately 19,000 mites Of rivers and streams in Pennsylvania impaired for water supply, aquatic life, recreation or fish consumption.

Stormwater runoff is one of the biggest reasons for impairment.

Stormwater carries an immense amount Of pollution, including sediment. Car oil, lawn fertilizers and pesticides. Those pollutants have many negative impacts on our Streams and rivers.
