Stormwater Management

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Urbanization increases the variety and amount of pollutants carried into our nation’s waters. In urban and suburban areas, much of the land surface is covered by buildings, pavement and compacted landscapes with impaired drainage. These surfaces do not allow rain and snow melt to soak into the ground which greatly increases the volume and velocity of stormwater runoff.”

If stormwater run-off contains toxic or hazardous substances such as chemicals, petroleum products, pesticides, heavy metals, or other regulated contaminants, it can ultimately pollute our lakes, streams, and rivers.
