Stormwater Testing Missouri

When rain and snowmelt flow from streets, construction sites, and land into storm sewers and ditches, the water washes away pollutants as a result of the runoff. Eventually, this surge empties the polluted stormwater directly into streams and rivers with no treatment. When this happens, stormwater pollution occurs. Stormwater testing in Missouri lets experts measure the amount of pollutants that is present in stormwater runoff, and track the sources of pollutants to bring them to a more manageable level.

Without stormwater testing in Missouri, we allow polluted stormwater to degrade our lakes, rivers, wetlands and other waterways. Nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen can cause the overgrowth of algae which results in oxygen depletion in waterways. Toxic substances from motor vehicles, and the careless application of pesticides and fertilizers threaten water quality. Stormwater testing in Missouri checks for the quality of stormwater runoff that leads to the bodies of water.
