Do you know where the rainwater that falls on your house and lawn goes when it leaves your property? If you live in Livonia, it goes to one of the branches of the River that flows through the City. Livonia collects stormwater and sanitary wastewater in different sewers, called
separated sewers. Separate storm sewers collect rainwater that falls on our homes, yards, businesses, and streets, and transports it to a nearby river. So, although you may not live adjacent to the Rouge River, the rainwater that falls on your house, driveway, and yard ends up in the Rouge.
