The City of Saint Peter’s Stormwater Utility is committed to the preservation and enhancement of citizens’ quality of life through water quality improvement, drainage infrastructure management, flood hazard minimizations, and public awareness.
Stormwater is water from rain or melting snow that does not soak into the ground. Instead, it flows from rooftops, across paved areas, and through sloped lawns. As stormwater moves across these surfaces, it can pick up and carry along pollutants such as: Chemicals, Grease, Oil, Sediment, Yard and Pet Waste.
