§ 53.115  GENERALLY.
   Storm sewer runoff is defined as the precipitation that travels over land and across surfaces, including but not limited to parking lots, driveways, or rooftops, and flows into our streams or rivers via storm drains or drainage system infrastructure. In addition to adding pollutants to storm water, urban development increases the quantity and velocity of runoff, so that downstream properties become more susceptible to flooding, erosion increases in channels and streams, and the land's natural beauty and habitats are lost.
