Storm Drains

Storm drains play an important role in our City. They keep our roads safe by draining rain water and snow melt and preventing flooding.

Many people do not know that most of our storm drains are connected directly to a local waterway (e.g. Rock Run Creek or the Elkhart River). This means everything dropped on the road can pollute our streams and river.

Potential pollutants like soil, trash, oil, grass clippings,and poop all impair the water and make it tough for fish and other wildlife to live. Some pollutants, like poop and oil, can become health hazards for people as well.
