Keeping the pollutants out of the Boise River ensures that future generations will be able to enjoy all of the treasures of our valley.

Local businesses create important economic contributions by providing necessary services to the community and maintaining the urban landscape. Due to the nature of their operations, if not managed properly, they have the potential to cause stormwater pollution.

Stormwater can be impacted by improper day-to-day activities, such as:

  • Parking lot maintenance
  • Spills
  • Materials handling
  • Cleaning of equipment or buildings
  • Cooling and refrigeration equipment maintenance
  • Landscaping and grounds maintenance
  • Dumpster and loading dock areas
  • Illegal connections to storm drainage systems


The Partners for Clean Water look forward to educating you and your employees about the rules and regulations surrounding your business and our local water quality issues. We are here to assist vehicle service facilities, restaurants, mobile cleaners and pressure washers, commercial landscapers, carpet cleaners and other businesses that have the potential to negatively impact stormwater.

To assist you and your business, we have developed educational materials to ensure you have all the tools you need to help the Partners in stormwater pollution prevention.
