Storm Water Management
Storm Water Management
Storm water is any water that pools during rain or other precipitation and instead of soaking into the ground, becomes a surface runoff. The storm water will then either enter surface waterways or be channeled into the storm sewers. The problem is that as this storm water flows, it picks up pollutants that can enter the surface waterways such as the sea or rivers and in turn cause problems for the community who uses those waterways. Unfortunately, pollutants are not the only concern when storm water is present in Austin, Tx as it can also create other complications. Luckily the drainage contractors at Austin Drainage and Landscape Development are able to help you manage it.
Why Storm Water Management Matters
Since storm water is such a common occurrence, you may be wondering why it needs to be managed at all. The fact is that not only can it affect the waterways in the Austin, Tx community, but it can affect you and your property personally as well. As mentioned earlier, due to the nature of storm water and the fact that it runs over grass, soil and other land, it will bring pollutants such as trash, chemicals and sediments into the waterways such as lakes, rivers and the sea. This can affect the water quality and the local marine ecosystem. It may even cause erosion on hillsides and banks making areas in the community unsafe. Keep in mind that if the lakes and beaches become contaminated, your favorite areas to relax may be closed. In addition, storm water may clog the drainage systems in your area, creating flooding.
