Only Rain Down the Drain

As Harford County developed, we have constructed roads, parking lots, and driveways that disrupt the natural flow of water. When rain lands on these hard surfaces, it is not able to seep into the ground and instead becomes stormwater runoff. The runoff flows into a stormdrain and travels through a network of pipes to the nearest waterway.
As this stormwater travels to the stormdrain, it picks up many pollutants such as motor oil, yard waste, transmission fluid, fertilizer and much more!
In order to keep our streams healthy, we need people like you to keep our stormwater clean of these dangerous pollutants... and here is how you can help!
