Storm water is created when rain falls on hard surfaces and drains off of buildings, road surfaces, or other industrial materials. Storm water can carry pollutants like pesticides, paint, and oil through the storm drain system directly into local creeks and other bodies of water without filtration. By using preventative measures we reduce our impact upon local water sources.
Bordering the Guadalupe River it is important to act as environmental stewards. The Airport implements preventative measures to protect storm water by mimicing natural systems using native vegetation and surfaces that allow rainwater to be absorbed and recharge local groundwater.
