Did you know that Fort Wayne Utilities is responsible for managing both stormwater quality and quantity and has been mandated federal and state regulators to reduce the amount of pollution reaching the rivers? Stormwater is exactly what it sounds like. When it rains, or when snow melts, water that is not soaked into the ground may run off lawns or pavement and go directly into a storm drain, and then straight into a nearby river or creek. Learn more about stormwater and how to improve water quality in the rivers.
