When it rains in the City of King, do you know where the water is collected? Storm water runoff does not go to treatment plants as one might think. Instead, storm water drains into the City's curbs and gutters, pipes, open channels and other types of community retention basins, such as parks, local lakes and creeks. Remember, You are the Solution to Storm Water Pollution!
The City's Storm Water Program has been created to help educate the community on environmental regulations. City of King works with state and federal regulators to make sure residents, businesses, contractors and the general public know the effect of storm water drainage and how they can help reduce the number of pollutants that enter the storm drain system. As part of this effort, the City offers brochures in what are called Best Management Practices which target industries (i.e. automotive, construction , food services, janitorial services, pressure washing and etcetera).
