How Effective Stormwater Solutions Can Turn a Dire Situation Around

To help curb floods and pollution caused by stormwater runoffs, communities must look into efficient solutions that provide exceptional storage and detention capabilities. Go for a system that offers more water capacity compared to what most providers offer. Furthermore, go for something that offers flexibility which means being able to adapt and operate in pervious or non-pervious types of soils.

Additionally, there are companies like HydroLogic Solutions that offer StormChamber, one of the few cost-effective storm water solutions equipped with the latest technologies and that meet zero discharge standards. Problems like stormwater can be resolved with the right approach and a formula of topnotch equipment and full cooperation from the community.

Going Down the Drain: What Effective Stormwater Systems Can Really Do

Meanwhile, some systems act as detention basins where water is gathered and eventually dried up before the next storm arrives. Though there are many companies offering a stormwater system which they claim to be the most effective, there are crucial factors that you need to keep in mind when choosing the right provider.

Go for trusted companies that offer solutions which are competitively-priced and yet maintain high quality standards. There are providers like HydroLogic Solutions which offer less expensive options that are easy to install, environment-friendly, and sure to get the job done. A system such as StormChamber® from the said provider is an alternative management tool for the control of water runoff.

Storm Water Management Practices Face New Regulations from the EPA

The new proposed regulations are particularly focused on the implementation of performance standards for new and redeveloped sites of construction projects. In addition, they will create a single set of stormwater best management practices for all municipal separate sewer systems.

These include retrofitting existing infrastructure with advanced rainwater control measures such as those provided by HydroLogic Solutions, who offer advanced StormChamber® water management technologies.

$22.9M in Grants for Stormwater BMP Helps Reduce Pollution in Virginia

Nitrogen is the other pollutant that comes with stormwater runoff which is also a key ingredient in fertilizers. Excess amounts of bioavailable nitrogen in aquatic systems leads to algae blooms that can poison the water due to toxins produced by the algae, as well as deplete oxygen levels.

One of the main goals of the approved projects is to reduce levels of phosphorus and nitrogen, which Virginia is already a leader in since this problem has come to the public’s attention. Now with extra funds being put toward greater improvements in stormwater BMPS, even better water quality is possible.
