Motorized vehicles are a source of a variety of pollutants found in stormwater runoff. The oil, antifreeze, rubber, heavy metals, transmission fluid and brake fluid can be deposited and accumulate on roadway surfaces through normal use of vehicles. These pollutants can be carried during rain events to storm drains and ditches and eventually our streams and the lake.
The Transportation Program Area strives to design and develop transportation systems that: include alternatives to automobiles, locate “through” routes away from the lakeshore, ensure treatment of runoff before entering the lake and otherwise protects water quality.
The buttons to the right provide links to recent transportation information and activities.
