To meet these requirements and improve water quality, the City has developed a Stormwater Management Program (PDF) with the objective of reducing nonpoint source pollution. Nonpoint source pollution, unlike pollution from industrial or 'end of pipe' sources, comes from many different sources and everyday activities.
Major components of this Stormwater Management Program include:
Public education, outreach, and citizen involvement
Construction and post-construction runoff controls
Municipal operations and maintenance pollution prevention and good housekeeping
