Storm Drains

Storm drains play an important role in our City. They keep our roads safe by draining rainwater and snowmelt 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 animal waste (e.g. dog 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.
