Walker County has 2 Enviroscapes Models for use in educating the public about the effects of non-point source pollution and Stormwater runoff. Please contact the Planning Department at 706-638-4048 to schedule a demonstration for your group or classroom.


The Trouble with Stormwater Runoff

Stormwater runoff is rainwater that runs off rooftops, lawns, driveways and streets in our neighborhoods. As it flows, it picks up leaves and grass clippings, pesticides and fertilizers, oil and grease, harmful bacteria, toxic chemicals, litter and other contaminants.

All of these pollutants are carried by stormwater into our storm drains and ultimately our streams and rivers.

The people below are taking care of their home and car, but they are doing many things that can damage the environment, especially when stormwater runoff comes in contact with their activities.
