2022 STORMWATER NEWS

The City of Warren is required by the Ohio EPA to implement a stormwater management program. This program is managed by the Water Pollution Control Department (WPC). Part of this program includes letting residents know about the program and providing information about stormwater pollution and how to prevent it from entering our rivers, lakes and streams.

As stormwater flows over the ground, it picks up litter, chemicals, and pollutants that can contaminate our drinking and recreational water supply. Unlike residential wastewater (from toilets, showers, and sinks) that is filtered through a wastewater treatment facility, anything that enters a storm sewer system or roadside ditches in the City of Warren goes to Mosquito Creek or the Mahoning River with no treatment.
