Storm Water

Storm Water Runoff

Storm water runoff is rain water that runs off rooftops, lawns, driveways and streets in our neighborhoods. As it flows, it picks up dirt, leaves, grass clippings, pesticides and fertilizers, oil and grease, harmful bacteria, toxic chemicals, litter and other contaminants. All of these pollutants are carried by storm water into storm drains and ultimately into our streams and waterways. Remember to keep our storm drains clean and our creeks free from pollution. Please do not place anything in the gutter that will wash down the storm drains.

Clean wetlands and healthy streams are important to Kaysville City. The storm water from parking lots, driveways, and streets flow into storm drains which goes untreated into the streams, wetlands and eventually enters the Great Salt Lake. Pollution entering the storm drains make the waterway unsafe for people and wildlife.

  • Clean up spills immediately.
  • Do not allow materials to flow into the storm drain.
  • Do not wash any spill into the gutter or storm drain.
  • Know where storm drains on or near your property are located.
  • Think before you dump anything on the ground or in the gutter.
