Stormwater is water generated from storm events such as rain or snow. Stormwater runoff is the water that is from these events that flows over streets, lawns, fields, and buildings. This water travels to areas of lower elevation, such as lakes and streams. This runoff can also collect pollutants (debris, oil, grease, pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) that will eventually be received by lakes and streams.
The stormwater runoff from the City of Beavercreek eventually makes it to the Ohio River. The pollutants in the runoff add to the pollutants for other sources, such as industrial sites, other urbanized areas, and agricultural areas.
The City of Beavercreek developed the Beavercreek Stormwater Management Ordinance as part of compliance with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) regulations. The goal of this plan is to reduce pollutants in the city’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4), storm water runoff, and outfalls.
