Storm Water Management

In order to comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Riverlea is required to have a Storm Water Management Plan. Riverlea’s Storm Water Management Plan is available to read online [pdf]. Part of the action plan is to keep residents informed of how you can help keep our waters clean.

Riverlea’s storm water drains discharge storm water directly into the Olentangy River. We must be careful not to pollute the storm water with any type of household or construction waste material.

Things you can do:

  • Dispose of all waste appropriately.
  • Do not pour any waste into the storm drains. This includes oils, grease, animal waste, litter, pesticides, etc.
  • Recycle approved materials via the weekly trash pickup.
  • Keep leaves and grass clippings out of the street and curbs.
  • Dispose of Hazardous Materials at the Worthington Service Department.
  • Educate and remind your children about these guidelines.
  • Report any violations to the Village at (614) 547-3037.

Learn more about Water Quality on the United States Environmental Protection Agency website.
The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency Division of Surface Water website is also a good source of information.

With your help, we can help keep Ohio’s rivers clean.
