Caring for a stream means caring for the land or watershed that drains to it. Pollution prevention is the key. Hazardous chemicals, automotive products, pesticides, fertilizers, pet wastes, excessive soil erosion and air pollution all contribute to water pollution. Pollutants can be washed from streets, lawns, roofs and even out of the air by rainfall-eventually ending up in wetlands, streams and lakes.
Fort Collins Stormwater System
Storm drains or gutters carry water into a network of pipes that lead directly to the Poudre River. Storm drains are not part of the sewer system, so water in storm drains is not treated in a treatment plant. Instead, stormwater runs directly into streams, rivers and lakes.
Utilities sponsors and supports a storm drain marking program to educate the community about stormwater drainage.
