Smiths Station is an MS4 (Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System) as designated by the Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Water Act. “Separate storm sewer system” includes ditches, curbs, gutters, storm sewers, and similar means of collecting or conveying runoff that does not connect with a wastewater collection system or treatment plant. As stormwater flows with gravity, it picks up pollutants along the way which end up in our creeks and streams. These local waterways flow directly into our state waterways.
