Fountain Creek

Back to City Engineering

Stormwater is rain or snow that falls on streets, parking areas, rooftops and other developed land and either flows directly into nearby streams or travels there through drainage systems, such as curbs and gutters, inlets, storm sewers, detention ponds and channels. The flows are then discharged, untreated, into major drainage ways such as Fountain and Monument Creeks.

Stormwater is a main source of water flow to our watershed. A watershed is the area of land that drains to a particular point along a stream. Managing stormwater runoff in terms of both water quantity and water quality is crucial to protecting people and property in Colorado Springs and in communities downstream of our city.
