WHO NEEDS STORM WATER MANAGEMENT?
“Most commercial businesses in developed areas from one time to another.
WHY DOES MY BUSINESS NEED STORM WATER MANAGEMENT?
“Normally Storm water, which is rain and melted snow drain naturally into streets, lawns and other sites. In developed areas, industrial parks, communities, etc… the impervious surfaces such as pavement and roofs prevent precipitation from naturally soaking into the ground. Instead, the water runs rapidly into storm drains, sewer systems, and drainage ditches.”
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN BUSINESSES DON'T CALL PROFESSIONALS FOR STORM WATER SOLUTIONS?
“The unnatural drain patterns from the run off water can cause downstream flooding, contamination, stream bank erosion and so much more.
DO I HAVE TO DEAL WITH STORMWATER MANAGEMENT?
“In a word, YES! The Federal Government has requirements and guidelines set out by the EPA. The new paradigms and requirements are set out in Executive Order (EO) 13514, signed in October 2009, the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), and EO 13423.
