Who Needs Stormwater Management
Stormwater is another valuable water resource that has been getting a lot of attention in recent years. Stormwater management refers to all efforts and activities for reducing unplanned runoff and snowmelts from degrading downstream water quality. Capturing, treating, and re-using the stormwater has provided a great water supply source for irrigation and aquifer recharge and more agencies are planning to utilize this valuable resource. The stormwater management practices include minimizing impervious surfaces, increasing green space, promoting infiltration, and treating runoff on site.
