Can stormwater be cleaned?

Yes, but it is costly.Sediment and other pollutants need to be removed from the water by ponds before draining into lakes and streams. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency requires cities to maintain their storm system so water going into natural resources like lakes and rivers is clean before entering.
