Stormwater Public Service Announcement
Stormwater is water from precipitation that flows across the ground and pavement when it rains or when snow and ice melt. The water seeps into the ground or drains into what we call storm sewers. These are the drains you see at street corners or at low points on the sides of your streets. Collectively, the draining water is called stormwater runoff and is a concern to us in commercial and industrial sites, as well as your neighborhood, because of the pollutants it carries. Stormwater is not treated once it enters the city storm sewers, therefore all of the untreated stormwater flows into the Yellowstone River.
The City of Billings has teamed up with MusEco (The Green Man) to provide education about the importance of keeping the storm drains clean. To view the public service announcement, click on the link below:
