Stormwater Education & Outreach

Stormwater Education & Outreach

Storm water runoff is...any water that is not soaked into the ground after a rain storm.

Consequently, storm water runoff can pick up pollutants while flowing into local streams and rivers. The Storm Water Management Program (SWMP), launched in 2003, is ODOT\'s inter-agency effort to control pollutants in storm water discharge.

 How you care for your lawn can affect your local waterways. Runoff, yard clippings, chemicals, where and what you plant are just some of the components that can create stormwater pollution.

Go to for healthy lawn care practices including pollution prevention.

For more ways to prevent stormwater pollution from your lawn, refer to: What You Can Do in Your Yard article below provided by the EPA.
