Stormwater management

Stormwater management is now an integral part of our interaction with our environment. Increasing development and urbanization of our lands has led to changes in the natural environment that include increases in flooding, degradation of water quality, erosion, and sedimentation of our waterways. This in turn has led to measured impacts to the stream and riparian ecosystems including decreases in aquatic biodiversity and inability of the natural system to accommodate the full range of flows that occur from storms to droughts. To reduce these impacts, we are now implementing stormwater management plans in most urban areas.
