Do cities update their waste water runoff systems?



  1. 0 Votes

    Most cities’ wastewater runoff systems, namely storm drains are typically not updated or re-built unless there is a major problem with them for many decades. However, cities are constantly updating their laws and codes. For example, with the Clean Water Act, cities of more than 100,000 residents were mandated to have “clean water” programs and plans in place. Thus, new positions were created within the government for employees to work with businesses and citizens alike to curtail activities that are harmful to watersheds, such as livestock grazing or walking in bodies of water, or people dumping chemicals down storm water drains.
