Sources and Solutions: Stormwater

This EPA webpage briefly defines urban stormwater runoff and offers green infrastructure solutions for managing pollutants.

Key findings

“Urban and suburban areas produce much more stormwater runoff due to the high amount of paved and hard surfaces.”

“Stormwater runoff can contain nitrogen and phosphorus pollutants from fertilizers and pet and yard waste.”

“Green infrastructure works by slowing down the runoff, spreading it out over the land, and slowly soaking it into the ground, or in some cases reusing the water onsite.”
