Storm drains are designed to prevent flooding. Water that enters our storm drains is not treated before it enters into our creeks and eventually the ocean. The City is required by the Federal Clean Water Act to comply with a Stormwater National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit issued by the State. Almost anything that enters a storm drain besides water is considered pollution.
