A greater variety of trees grow in the southern Appalachians than in any other region of the United States. The temperate forests in North America are more diverse than those of Europe because the mountains run from north to south instead of east to west.

As stormwater runoff flows over various surfaces such as streets, parking lots, rooftops and construction sites, it picks up debris, chemicals, sediment and other pollutants and carries them into local streams and rivers by way of the storm sewer system. Therefore, instead of being treated at a wastewater facility prior to discharge, the stormwater that enters these drains along with all of the pollutants that they carry flows directly to our nearby streams and ponds such as Town Run or Abrams Creek. These pollutants adversely affect the water quality of our streams.
