Clean water contributes to our quality of life. We rely on clean water for drinking water, economic success, recreation, and wildlife habitat. Stormwater runoff can contribute to a variety of pollutants that threaten our community’s waterways: heavy metals such as mercury, bacteria such as E. coli, and toxins like motor oil, just to name a few. To keep our waterways clean, we need to keep stormwater clean. The City of Springfield is working hard to protect water quality, but we need your help. If you see spills or illegal dumping, please contact us.
