5 Stormwater Treatment Methods

There are many effective solutions for controlling and managing stormwater on your property. At iSTORMWATER, our team can help you identify the optimal solution for your needs, available space, and other factors. Common water-sensitive urban design solutions our team can build include:

Detention basins: Detention basins are designed to remain dry between rainfall events. When the rain falls, the basins fill and contain the water as it gradually channels into the drain, sewer, retention pond, etc.

Rain gardens: Rain gardens are shallow depressions planted with native plants and sustainable plant species. These can be positioned anywhere in the landscape because the design allows water to penetrate and drain into the underlying soil, where it flows into groundwater supplies.

Infiltration systems: Infiltration systems incorporate a shallow, excavated trench that detains and retains runoff until the surrounding soil can absorb the moisture and deposit it within groundwater aquifers.

Gravity drainage: Gravity drainage systems utilize underground drains and open channels to channel the water into wetlands, cisterns, or city sewer systems.

Bioretention swales: Like rain gardens and infiltration systems, bioretention swales detain runoff within a filtration trench planted with native grasses and plant species. The water is treated as the runoff percolates through the soil and filter media and is then deposited into pipes and channeled into waterways downstream.

Top Expert Tips for Reducing Stormwater Pollution

Every business needs to do its part to help contain pollution within our regional environment. To that end, there are some simple steps that commercial enterprises can take that will enhance the performance of their stormwater management systems and plans, including:

  • Refrain from overfertilizing, as this can increase soil salinity and cause root burn.
  • Sweep, don’t hose driveways and parking lots. This reduces the amount of pollutants, dirt, and other waste the stormwater management system must filter.
  • Use native plants around your landscape to create a biodiverse ecosystem that will thrive in our climate.

Incredible stormwater management service. The owner John consulted on a property I manage and ended up saving us thousands of dollars in environmental fees from the government. Now, our property is compliant with the EPA and we have a great partner to keep us maintained on storm water regulations over time.
