Storm Water Pollution is everything that flows down the street and enters the storm water drainage system without being cleaned at treatment plants. Anything that flows through the system, besides rainwater, is called stormwater pollution. This runoff is the largest source of pollution in our nation's waterways.
The City of Belton Transportation Division works to reduce the amount of pollution that empties into local waterways. Usually, stormwater pollution is caused by people doing little things (for example, flushing fireworks, fuel, oil, and grass clippings into the stormdrain) that accumulate and become a more serious problem.
