Stormwater Management

The Stormwater Management Program protects water quality in 800+ miles of streams and protects property from flooding through planning, maintenance, water quality assessment, and pollution prevention, reporting and enforcement. Storm drains lead to streams, not a wastewater treatment facility. Your actions impact local watershed health and the Chesapeake Bay.
