Eliminate Dangerous Storm Runoff with Efficient Storm Water Systems
A November 1, 2014 article from The Guardian reported on a strong storm that hit California. Heavy rain ensued and brought much-needed relief to the drought-stricken state. Unfortunately, the rains also caused mudslides in Los Angeles. State officials, however, were able to safely evacuate those residing in danger areas. While many chose to look at the bright side and greeted the rain with open arms, experts warned people that flood runoff can be dangerous. Running water can be easily contaminated, because flood run off contains bacteria, chemicals, and other contaminants that make the water dangerous for public consumption.
