Anything that gets in the path of a raindrop becomes storm water pollution. Another name for storm water pollution is non-point source pollution.
Every time it rains, storm water is carried directly to our surface waters. That means that means storm water pollution can have detrimental effects to creeks, lakes, ponds, rivers and the oceans into which drains.
Storm water can carry sediment, trash, automotive fluids like used oil and antifreeze, grass clippings, leaves, yard waste, excess fertilizers, animal waste, pesticides and anything else that gets in the way.
