Storm water is rain that does not get absorbed into the ground. It flows into storm drainage systems and is washed directly into local bodies of water such as creeks and rivers. Storm water can also refer to any runoff that occurs from washing cars, power washing impervious surfaces, over watering of lawns and gardens or other sources.
