Our waterways are a distinctive part of our region – sustaining wildlife, recreation, business and community development. Unfortunately, pollution collected from parking lots, driveways and roads throughout the basin flows directly into our precious waterways. This untreated water from rain and snowmelt pollutes the Rock River and its tributaries.

This website is a resource for all of us in the Rock River Basin as we do our part to help reduce pollution in our waterways. We have tips for residents of the Rock River Basin and businesses that operate here, as well as an explanation of our basin  and information on what polluted stormwater does to the Rock River. Together, we can Renew the Rock River and its tributaries by keeping pollutants out of the path of stormwater runoff.

This website is supported by the Rock River Stormwater Group, a coalition of communities from Beaver Dam to Beloit committed to improved river health.  Click on each community in the map below for information specific to your city or town.  Rock River Stormwater Group collaborates with the Madison Area Stormwater Partnership, a sister organization within the Rock River watershed that focuses on the Madison area.
