How is wastewater treated?
Stonegate Village has its own wastewater treatment plant facility that provides wastewater service for the Stonegate community. The plant is located northwest corner of E470 and Jordan Road.
Do wastewater systems and stormwater systems flow through the same pipes?
No. Wastewater systems flow to a treatment plant, but stormwater systems flow directly into the creeks, rivers, and lakes without the benefit of treatment. Watch H2O Jo Takes a Trip Down the Storm Drain or visit www.OneThingIsClear.org to learn more.
Can print, solvents, and used motor oil be safely disposed of into a stormwater system?
No. Only rainwater should be entering the stormwater system. Anything else could be considered an illicit discharge and a violation of local, state, and federal laws. Tri-County Health Department provides information on how to dispose of Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW) in your community.
How can I help reduce stormwater pollution in my area?
Participate in the next creek cleanup in your area. Storm drain stenciling events – where the destination of stormwater is clearly marked on the drain – are a fun way to let your neighbors know the storm drain is only for rain. Attend public hearings or meetings on the topic so you can express your concerns. Report stormwater violations when you spot them to your local government. Keep learning about polluted stormwater runoff and tell a friend!
