Storm Water Management

 
The Prince William County storm water management system consists of man-made components (pipes, ditches, and ponds) and natural components (streams, wetlands, and floodplains) that controls the quantity and quality of storm water to prevent flooding and minimize pollutants entering our waterways. The Board of County Supervisors established a Storm Water Management Program on May 15, 1994.  It is funded by the Storm Water Management Fee
