Stormwater runoff is water that flows across the land, some infiltrates into the ground, some evaporates, and some flows into the streams, storm drains, or other water bodies. The Lancaster County Conservation District with financial and technical assistance from many groups recently published “The Homeowner’s Guide to Stormwater”. The guide can be accessed on-line at:
