Tookany/Tacony-Frankford: Clean Your Water

What is Stormwater? And why should you care?
Stormwater is the rain water that runs off the land and fills our streets, sewers, and (unfortunately) basements. This rainwater runoff can cause flooding and can carry pollution directly into our creeks, lakes, rivers, and streams.

Wherever you live, your actions affect local waterways. The things you do at home on land have an impact downstream. If you live in the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed, you can help protect water by preventing pollution from entering our streams and creeks.

There's a new movement afoot to prevent the problems caused by runoff by using a greener approach. Rain gardens, green roofs, and naturalized landscapes are just a few of the methods that turn stormwater from nuisance into resource.
