Stormwater

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, however, 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 flooding, sewer overflows, habitat destruction, water contamination, and infrastructure damage. A green building has the opportunity to encompass many approaches and technologies to infiltrate, capture, and reuse stormwater to maintain or restore natural hydrologic systems.
