Impact of Pocatello Businesses on Portneuf River Water Quality

Keeping the pollutants out of the Portneuf River ensures that future generations will be able to enjoy all of the treasures of our valley.

Local businesses create important economic contributions by providing necessary services to the community and maintaining the urban landscape. Due to the nature of their operations, if not managed properly, they have the potential to cause stormwater pollution.

Stormwater can be impacted by improper day-to-day activities, such as:

  • Parking lot maintenance
  • Spills
  • Materials handling
  • Cleaning of equipment or buildings
  • Cooling and refrigeration equipment maintenance
  • Landscaping and grounds maintenance
  • Dumpster and loading dock areas
  • Illegal connections to storm drainage systems
