Stormwater Management And How It Affects Everyone And Everything 

Stormwater pollutants Start with rain and end with either a properly managed drainage system or poor to no managing beng done by both homeowners and businesses alike.  pollutants during a rain event are caused by runoff over pavements and roofs with oils, trash, and debris entering sewer systems and ending up in our streams, rivers, ponds, and lakes.  With communities dedicated to helping our water quality through small and large projects can greatly reduce the pollutants entering our drinking water sources and ecosystems that are used on a daily basis.  So next time you wash your car next to the storm drain, dump oils, or wash your paint brush off in the sink, think about where that goes and do your part in protecting our fresh water sources around Decatur.  Give us a call to discuss options on how we can help you help our community improve water quality and manage your rainwater responsibly.
