We will think through every facet of your home’s design at the outset and answer any questions you have!
From the EPA – “Stormwater is rainwater or melted snow that runs off streets, lawns and other sites. When stormwater is absorbed into soil, it is filtered and ultimately replenishes aquifers or flows into streams and rivers. In developed areas, impervious surfaces such as pavement and roofs prevent precipitation from naturally soaking into the ground. Instead, water runs rapidly into storm drains, sewer systems and drainage ditches and can cause: Downstream flooding, Stream bank erosion, Increased turbidity (muddiness created by stirred up sediment) from erosion, Habitat destruction, Combined storm and sanitary sewer system overflows, Infrastructure damage, Contaminated streams, rivers and coastal water. “Green infrastructure” encompasses approaches and technologies to infiltrate, evapotranspire, capture and reuse stormwater to maintain or restore natural hydrologies.”
