Posted 1 year ago

Produced by the California Water Boards, “What the Heck is Storm Water Runoff?” is Episode 1 in a series of exciting instructional videos on what people can do to change how stormwater leaves their landscapes and how they can be stewards of their watersheds. This video provides a quick introduction to pollution and stormwater with a similar message as the original more detailed Slow the Flow video. This video also briefly describes the many negative impacts polluted stormwater runoff has on human health and the environment. Some of the strategies to eliminate polluted stormwater runoff in urban areas are also touched on in this video. (5:20)
