PRECIPITATION: a deposit on the earth of hail, mist, rain, sleet, melting ice and snow, or irrigation water… in other words: H2O
When a precipitous event occurs, several things can happen to the precipitation:
- some infiltrates into the soil surface
- some is taken up by plants
- some is evaporated into the atmosphere
STORMWATER RUN-OFF: the remainder of Precipitation that flows over land, roads, and impervious surfaces that drain into sewers and/or streams, rivers, and lakes immediately following a precipitous event instead of being absorbed into the ground or evaporating.
