STORMWATER PSAs

STORMWATER VIDEO PSA

S

Much of the pollution in our streams and lakes

comes from chemicals and wastes carried by

urban stormwater runoff, with no treatment. Both

too much runoff from the ground and too little

infiltration into the ground can harm streams.

Adding pavements and buildings, impervious

surfaces, dramatically increases amounts

and rates of runoff, causing flooding, eroding

streams, increasing sedimentation and impairing

habitats for desirable animals and plants.

This award recognizes a 60-second video

public service announcement created by a high

school student raising awareness of stormwater

issues.
