The practice of managing storm water is continuing to evolve as the science of watershed management and understanding of our watersheds grow. Effective management of storm water is critical to the continued health of your homes foundation.
In simple terms, precipitation that lands on the ground surface is distributed in several directions. Some of the water infiltrates the ground (infiltration), some of it runs off the surface (runoff), and much of the remainder either evaporates or is consumed by plants. with the introduction of hard surfaces and the reduction in vegetated cover alter the grounds ability to absorb rainfall, significantly more runoff is generated.
