Stormwater runoff is the water that flows off of hard, impermeable surfaces–like roofs, sidewalks, and roads–when it rains. This water picks up pollutants before it flows into stormdrains that then take the untreated water and dump it directly into streams, rivers, lakes, and Puget Sound. Pollution from stormwater runoff is currently the number one source of pollution in Puget Sound. King County is working hard to fix this problem, but we can’t do it alone.
