Stormwater runoff is water from precipitation that does not soak into the ground. Such as rooftops, over paved areas, bare soil, and through sloped lawns. Stormwater runoff then accumulates in and flows through natural or man-made conveyance systems during and immediately after a storm event. Natural conveyance systems are rivers, streams, brooks, wetlands, etc. Man-made conveyance systems are bridges, culverts, pipes, catch basins, etc.
Human activities have impacted the environment by the creation of impervious surfaces and dispersal of residual pollutants.
