The City of Palm Bay is dedicated to preserving the water quality of the community in order to protect, maintain and enhance the immediate and long term health, safety and general welfare of the citizens in Palm Bay.

Here in Palm Bay we live in the Indian River Lagoon Watershed, the majority of water in Palm Bay either reaches the Indian River Lagoon through Turkey Creek or via direct discharge.

Stormwater runoff is generated when precipitation from rain events flows over the land or impervious surfaces (paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops), it accumulates debris, chemicals, sediment or other pollutants that could adversely affect water quality if the runoff is discharged untreated.
