Stormwater Best Practices
Green Infrastructure is a stormwater management approach that saves money, supports sustainability, and more efficiently uses limited financial and natural resources. It is achieved by capturing raindrops where they fall reducing runoff volumes, and recharging groundwater supplies.
Simple stormwater practices can be applied by the homeowner for water quality, flood reduction and healthy natural resources.
Businesses come with buildings and paved parking areas that can increase stormwater runoff and generate pollutants from those areas (i.e., oil, grease, fertilizers, road salt).
Stream and lake property owners can do easy things to keep the water clean and the watershed healthy.
