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 stormwater discharge from a variety of sources. This includes public education, public involvement, the elimination of illicit discharges, construction site stormwater runoff, post-construction storm water management and pollution prevention.

Stormwater 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 stormwater problem, you can e-mail the Grove City Service Department or contact them by phone at 614-277-1100.
