Stormwater & Flooding

High floods and excessive stormwater has direct effect on human lives and local economy. However, even average storm might cause significant environmental issues: overflows from sanitary sewer system pollute surface water with hazardous bacteria; flushed nutrients will then cause algae-bloom that results in dead marine life in bay/lake; excessive sediment in bays & lakes from eroded streams, etc. Also affecting the drinking water quality. So we are not just dealing with direct effects of flooding but more long term effect on communities.

Effective Stormwater Management Must:

  • Capture & Control Wet Weather Runoff
  • Protect Groundwater and Surface Water Ecology – Both Quality and Quantity
  • Protect Human Health
  • Provide for Economic Health through Effective & Affordable Solutions
