Storm Water Drains

During a rain event, water runs over the land collecting pollutants and bringing them to the nearest storm-water drain.  Pollutants such as fertilizer, pesticide, motor oil, paint and litter that are washed into storm drains flow directly into our waterways including the Wyomissing Creek and Schuylkill River.  This pollution degrades our water quality and damages local aquatic habitats. 

Everyone can help prevent storm-water pollution by keeping potential pollutants away from storm drains and other bodies of water.
