How does the stormwater pollution affect me as a taxpayer?

When our water is polluted, we all pay in one way or another. Damage from flooding can raise merchant prices and insurance rates. Polluted water takes more money to treat before it can be used for drinking water. Tourism and recreation businesses suffer along with residents if swimming, fishing and boating are restricted.

Because everyone plays a role in creating the pollution in stormwater runoff, we all have a role in cleaning it up.
