The goal of the Goshen Stormwater Department is clean water for everyone and everything. One way this is achieved is through public education and the Stormwater Toolbox Newsletter is one of many ways this is accomplished. 

In this month’s newsletter, there are three articles:

  1. Stormwater Treatment Units – Stormwater treatment units or STUs help to minimize the impacts of stormwater pollutants on our local waterways by capturing pollutants. Read more about how these STUs are maintained and how much material was captured over the past year.
  1. Find out the origins of the words “waterway and watercourse” in the next installment of the “Why are there so many words for waterways?” series. 
  1. World Rivers Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of September and highlights the many values of our rivers and the threats they face.

If you have concerns about stormwater drainage or water quality issues or have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact the Goshen Stormwater Department at or 574-534-2201.
