Grove City Storm Water Management

The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II is a federally mandated program Grove City has been involved in since 2003. Municipalities involved in this program must designate part of their services to help protect water quality by regulating storm water discharge from a variety of sources. This includes public education, public involvement, the elimination of illicit discharges, construction site storm water runoff, post-construction storm water management and pollution prevention.
Storm water runoff flows directly to our streams and rivers without any filtration or treatment. This causes pollutants to wash into the storm sewers and drains. Pesticides and nutrients from lawns and gardens; oil, grease and toxic chemicals, litter, debris, sediment and pet waste are all forms of pollution.
Polluted storm water can lead to destruction of wildlife habitat, loss of aesthetic value, impaired recreation areas and contaminated water resources. If you have questions regarding this program or would like to report a storm water problem, you can e-mail the Grove City Public Service Department or contact them by phone at 614-277-1100.
The Grove City Stormwater Management Plan is designed to protect water quality by preventing pollutants from mixing with storm water runoff and flowing into the City’s storm sewer system.

Stormwater Pollution Prevention
As storm water flows over driveways, lawns, and sidewalks, it picks up debris, chemicals, dirt, and other pollutants. Storm water can flow into a storm sewer system or directly to a stream, wetland, river, lake, or coastal water. Anything that enters a storm sewer system is discharged unfiltered and untreated into water bodies we use for swimming, fishing, and for drinking water.
Polluted runoff is the nation’s greatest threat to clean water. It is illegal to discharge or dump litter, grass clippings, yard waste, pet waste, car wash fluid, septic tank waste matter, automotive and household hazardous waste into a storm drain or ditch.
Anything thrown or washed into a storm drain goes directly to a stream or river exactly the way it was when it was tossed in. Help protect Ohio’s water resources.
Paint, car fluids, solvents, and batteries should never be poured down the drain.
