Stormwater-Construction Activities
National Summary
When stormwater drains from a construction site, it carries sediment and other pollutants associated with the site that can harm lakes, streams, and wetlands. Controlling erosion from construction sites can significantly reduce the amount of sedimentation and other pollutants transported by stormwater runoff associated with construction activities.
