Are the storm water collection system and the sewer system the same? | City of Findlay, Ohio

Are the storm water collection system and the sewer system the same?


No, they are two completely different systems. The storm water collection system collects water runoff from the streets through catch basins and then conveys this water directly to the nearest receiving stream without treatment. The sewer collection system collect wastes from the households and businesses and are conveyed to the Water Pollution Control Center for full treatment before being discharged into the Blanchard River.
