Stormwater management is the process of managing stormwater runoff to minimize the potential for flooding and erosion, as well as improving the quality of the stormwater that does runoff.
Stormwater management is important because it can help protect people and property from the dangers of flooding, while also helping to improve water quality by reducing the amount of pollutants that enter waterways.
What can you do to help?
There are many things you can do to prevent flooding, including:
– Making sure your home is properly storm-proofed
– Ensuring storm drains in your neighborhood are clear and free of debris
– Limiting how much stormwater runoff your property generates (e.g. by installing rain gardens or rain barrels)
– Disposing of stormwater runoff responsibly (e.g. not pouring it down the drain or into storm sewers)
