Stormwater PSA

Posted: Updated:

Our river and streams are polluted.

When it rains, litter, oil and other harmful chemicals are washed from our city and flow untreated into our waterways. These pollutants can have a detrimental effect on our drinking water, local wildlife and aquatic recreation, for us, and for our neighbors downstream..

Rain gardens like the one planted by Leadership Roanoke Valley slow down, trap, and naturally filter stormwater runoff, keeping it from entering our rivers and streams. It's just one small way we can work together to keep our waterways clear..

Click on one of the links below to find out what you can do to keep stormwater from entering our waterways.
