Is storm water treated?
No, but the City does require pre-treatment of storm water with oil separation, dirt and leaf cleanouts and Low Impact Development (LID). LID is the process of allowing storm water to enter back into the ground as it did before development.
Are the storm water and sewer systems separate?
Yes. Please don’t allow contaminates into the storm water system since it overflows to Utah Lake.
Why can't I wash things down the gutter to the storm drain?
Utah Lake is becoming more and more contaminated leading to harmful and unsightly algal blooms.
