San Antonio isn't just home to residents and their families, but also to numerous businesses, developments and commercial facilities.  While individuals make conscious choices to reduce and prevent pollutants from contaminating rainfall runoff at home, our industries share an equal responsibility to be stewards of our environment by implementing clear practices, protocols and policies designed to prevent and mitigate pollution risks as a result of commercial operations and activities, including risk of illicit discharges in runoff.  Whether you run a business such as a restaurant or power-washing service, manage a construction site for a new housing development, or inspect production equipment at an industrial plant, you and your company play an important role in protecting our rivers and creeks from pollutants.
