Stormwater Information

The City of Watertown has developed Chapter 453 of the City Code to aid in the regulation and protection of local water quality. This ordinance provides the authority to prohibit the discharge of non-stormwater to the City stormwater drainage system and details the enforcement actions taken upon a violation. Basically, only rain should go down the drain.
