Baltimore, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Restoring Water Quality
Rain runs off roofs, roads, and parking lots in such volume and velocity that it scours and erodes streambeds and banks.
Rain falls on trees and other vegetation and evaporates, reducing water temperatures and slowing seeping into the ground and eventually into the stream, filtered and cleaned of pollutants.
