Urbanization has destroyed the natural filtration that water goes through before re-entering the water table. Furthermore, during heavy storms, water can overload sewers, which causes untreated sewage to overflow into lakes and rivers.

Polluted storm water runoff can have detrimental effects on animals, plants, fish, and people.

Polluted storm water often affects drinking water sources. This, in turn, can affect human health and increase drinking water treatment costs.

The installation of rain barrels and backyard ponds minimizes the water that directly enters sewers. A water garden can serve as a final collection point for runoff after a series of swales and channels. Water-based pollutants can be filtered by vegetation, filter traps and the settling action in the pond itself.
