Reduce Runoff Slow it down, spread it out, soak it in

Posted 1 year ago

Green techniques are being used in urban areas to reduce the effects of stormwater runoff on the quality of downstream receiving waters. The goal is to mimic the natural way water moved before development, using design techniques to infiltrate, evaporate, and reuse runoff close to its source.
