Stormwater has an enormous impact on water quality in Minnesota, whether it's runoff from farm fields or from urban hardscapes. Rain and snow melt can carry many types of pollutants into storm drains and surface waters. The MPCA regulates stormwater from municipalities, construction sites, and businesses that store material outside, to limit stormwater runoff and reduce pollution from stormwater.
