Stormwater is any type of precipitation that runs over the ground and drains into a gutter, ditch, storm drain, river, pond or lake. When stormwater runs across the ground it picks up pollutions such as grass clippings, fertilizer, litter, cigarette butts, motor oil from leaking cars, and brake dust. Polluted stormwater negatively affects our water quality and can lead to both economic and health problems because it is released into our waterways without being treated.

In fulfillment of the Clean Water Act and state stormwater regulations, Botetourt County is working to increase public knowledge of stormwater pollution and its effect on water quality. This is implemented through public education and outreach, public involvement and participation, illicit discharge detection and elimination, construction site control, post-construction management and development and pollution prevention/good housekeeping.

The Blue Ridge Parkway, which marked its 75th Anniversary in 2010, winds through the eastern border of Botetourt County for over 35 miles in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Bird lovers come each October to Harvey's Knob Overlook to watch the hawks and falcons as they migrate south for the winter.
