Earlier we learned about impervious surfaces that prevent water from entering the ground, resulting in surface runoff. Take a look around this location and note all of the impervious surfaces, roads, sidewalks, parking lots and roofs. In this parking lot, there are a few storm drains. This is an example of what used to happen before Lake Placid made improvements to Main Street. At this location, runoff goes down the storm drains into the Chubb River. Not only does water flow into the Chubb, but the pollutants from the streets are too.

The next stop is located at the bottom of the dirt path right before the Toboggan Chute. Follow the sidewalk past the post office and cross the road to get to it.
