Stormwater Systems Help Curb the Water Pollution Caused by Snowmelt

Many use stormwater chambers to store and treat runoff water, but there are concerns as to how much water they can hold, how well they can clean it, and how much the overall maintenance costs are. Fortunately, established companies like HydroLogic Solutions, Inc. have created a top-notch stormwater system called StormChamber® to help control water pollution.

For urban dwellers, rivers and oceans may be the last thing on their mind. However, snowmelt and stormwater runoff pollution not only threatens water bodies, but people as well. Fortunately, local governments can rely on industry-leading stormwater systems to ensure that water is properly filtered and treated before they reach bodies of water.

Western NY Conference to Tackle Storm Water Best Management Practices

He also noted that to do this, an array of solutions for storm water best management practices must be implemented. During his interview with Amherst Times, Poloncarz emphasizes the role of everyone in the preservation of environmental resources – and stormwater management is a critical tool.

The movement to protect the world’s remaining freshwater sources is stronger than ever, and statistical data from National Geographic supports this campaign. Only 0.007 percent of Earth’s waters are clean and fully-accessible to 6.8 billion people. Even worse, making full use of that tiny fraction is limited by the pollution caused by the same people who need it.

Latest Federal Legislation to Govern Community-Based Stormwater BMPs

The legislation also points out its definition of “innovative stormwater control infrastructure” – any of numerous stormwater BMPs that uses “natural systems or engineered systems that mimic natural processes to infiltrate, evapotranspire, or capture stormwater; and preserves, enhances, or mimics natural hydrology to protect or restore water quality.”

Climate change has been churning out a lot more storms than the world has ever experienced in the past decades. The dreadful fact is, most of these storms are monumentally-devastating. In fact, Typhoon Haiyan – considered to be probably the strongest storm in recorded human history, might seem weaker than the ones soon to hit the world’s shores
