Storm Water Runoff – Harmful to Humans and the Environment

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 10, 2006

Atlanta, GA, January 10, 2006 – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA) has made storm water runoff a national compliance priority for the upcoming years. Storm water runoff can become a major problem as it can significantly affect water quality. Storm water runoff can pick up chemicals, debris, pollutants and more as it flows to its final destination. These pollutants can initiate in storm water at hazardous waste sites, construction sites, outside of factories or gas stations and anywhere else that contaminants harmful to drinking water are spilled or disposed. Being non-compliant with storm water runoff can have serious impacts on human health and the environment. Make sure your company is not a contributing factor.
