Effective Stormwater BMPs Protect the Environment and Communities
Under different circumstances, dumping storm water runoff into the ocean isn’t a wise move because this can promote the growth of bacteria in the water system. A better solution would be enacting a stormwater BMP (best management practice) that not only reduces the risk of flooding, but protects the environment as well. Solutions from stormwater BMP experts like those at StormChambers are designed to be as eco-friendly as possible, while keeping the best interests of people in mind. One such solution utilizes underground ‘detention’ systems that store large volumes of storm water runoff for a period of time. If used in conjunction with a sediment removal system, these detention systems serve to remove harmful organisms and elements from stormwater runoffs before they are pumped to nearby streams and lakes.
