Information for Business
Stormwater pollution is one of the most serious challenges we face in protecting the health of the Indian River Lagoon. Pollutants that enter storm drains flow directly to the nearest creek or canal, and from there, into the lagoon.
We encourage businesses to help prevent stormwater pollution by monitoring loading docks, storage and work areas, parking lots, equipment, and general practices that could allow chemicals, solvents, eroded soils, and other materials to enter ditches
or storm drains.
