Stormwater Quality

Heritage Hills Metropolitan District has a program to protect the quality of our waterways from polluted stormwater runoff.   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.

Heritage Hills' stormwater program plan can be downloaded and we welcome any comments.
