Stormwater Management

Every time it rains, stormwater runoff (rainfall that does not soak into the ground) picks up debris such as litter, pesticides, chemicals, motor oil and dirt as it flows across rooftops, lawns, streets and parking lots. These pollutants can then be deposited -- untreated -- into Milton's waterways. 

Increased runoff from developed areas can also cause flooding and erosion of stream banks, which results in even more pollutants entering our streams.

Stormwater pollution can make monitoring and treating our drinking water more difficult and costly. In addition, it can harm our aquatic environment and ruin our ponds and streams' beauty. And it water sources get polluted, rivers, lakes and streams may be closed to the public. That's why the City of Milton's Stormwater Management Program is so critical. Read more about the program here.

Milton's Public Works staff provides the following stormwater services:

  • Manages the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program
  • Evaluates stormwater issues
  • Manages stormwater projects
  • Provides stormwater public information
