Managing Stormwater

Managing Stormwater

Do you like to fish? Do you like to kayak?  Are you concerned about having a dry basement? Are you concerned about clean drinking water?  If you answered yes to any of these, then you should care about stormwater!

What is stormwater? Stormwater is any precipitation that falls from the sky onto the land. In natural environments, most stormwater is absorbed into the soil. But when water hits impervious surfaces like roads, parking lots, and sidewalks, pollutants are washed into nearby waterbodies — including sources of our drinking water. Polluted stormwater adversely affects human and animal health, and too much of it can lead to flooding and damaged streams. Installing Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) is one way to improve water quality by treating stormwater where it falls
