Stormwater pollution is rapidly growing in importance as a national environmental issue. Stormwater pollution occurs when rain or snow melt flows over streets and picks up trash, oil, dirt, and other pollutants as it travels. These pollutants are then carried to the storm drainage system, which drains directly into our local creeks and streams, untreated.

State and Federal stormwater laws continue to be developed in order to protect this valuable resource now and for generations to come.

Colorado Stormwater Council is dedicated to keeping Colorado water clean by joining local municipalities and organizations together in order to create innovative stormwater programs in compliance with state and federal regulations.
