The stormwater system includes anything that would convey the water into a pond, lake, or stream. This includes a resident’s backyard if it drains outside the property lines. The chlorine discharged can damage aquatic life in lakes and streams as well as pose a hazard to other residents downstream. Swimming pool discharge should never be released in such a way that it would inconvenience adjacent properties.
Everyone will be affected by these regulations because individual communities will be forced to alter their existing ordinances to reduce the amount of non-point source pollution produced within their boundaries. This may lead to increased maintenance costs, new development design standards, and/or new regulations regarding fertilizer use just to name a few.
