Question #3

  1. Where does our storm system drain? (Please check all that apply)
  • Ocean
  • Local watercourse (creek, stream or river)
  • Water treatment facility
  • I don’t know
  • Other ______________________________


The top three replies to this question were the ocean, local watercourse and water treatment facility.  24% of respondents answered that the storm system drains to a water treatment facility, while 12% of respondents answered that they did not know where the storm system drains.

On the North Shore, catch basins in the road system drain into the storm water system, which is not connected to a water treatment facility.  The storm system drains into local creeks, many of which then drain directly to the ocean.
