Green Home Tips: Efficient Storm Water Management Begins at Your Lawn
Stormwater passes through your home, but eventually it will still be redirected back to rivers, lakes, and other natural bodies of water via your drainage system – as it does this, it may end up carrying waste, chemicals, pesticides, and other substances that might be harmful to the environment. Therefore, the goal of efficient stormwater management BMP solutions like StormChamber® by HydroLogic Solutions is to make sure that stormwater pollution is prevented as such systems regulate the flow of runoff, store water to avert flooding, and maintain water quality by filtering out the sediments. As a homeowner, you have a part to play in this as well – starting with what you do on your lawn.
