What is Stormwater?

Stormwater runoff water from rain, hail, and melting snow. It finds its way into the Town's drainage system, including catch basins and drainage swales, and eventually drains to a body of water such as a wetland, pond, stream, or ocean. Many of Rockport's stormwater outfalls drain directly into the ocean.
