Water Management

Stormwater Quality

The District works with the City of Lone Tree and Mile High Drainage to ensure compliance with all applicable water quality regulations related to stormwater runoff and provide healthy and diverse natural habitats for flora and fauna in stormwater facilities throughout the community. Stormwater runoff occurs when precipitation from rain or snowmelt flows over the ground. Impervious surfaces like driveways, sidewalks, and streets prevent stormwater from naturally soaking into the ground.   Stormwater can pick up debris, chemicals, dirt, and other pollutants and flow into a storm sewer system or directly to a lake, stream, river, or wetland. Anything that enters a storm sewer system is discharged untreated into the waterbodies we use for swimming, fishing, and providing drinking water.

Being proactive regarding fertilizer use, landscaping maintenance and pet waste management will have a positive impact on improving the water quality in our streams.
