Storm Water Management: Contributing Factors and what you need to know

When it comes to storm water management, there are several contributing factors that you need to be aware of, factors that can directly affect maintenance of storm water systems. These contributing factors include:

  • Aesthetics: A storm water management system cannot be an eyesore, especially if it is located in a community. A storm water management system needs to seamlessly blend into the environment.
  • Landscaping: Certain types of vegetation can directly affect the performance of storm water management systems.
  • Upstream Conditions: Erosion and high traffic areas located upstream can add significantly to the amount of sediment.
  • Cost: Enough money has to be allocated for the regular maintenance of storm water facilities.
  • Safety: Because these storm water management systems involve the storage of large amounts of water and because they are most often located in rural areas, safety (signage, fencing, etc.) needs to be of the upmost concern.
  • Professional Maintenance: Poorly designed, improperly constructed, and inadequately maintained utility infrastructures can lead to major environmental damage from flooding and erosion.  Storm water management and the maintenance of storm water management facilities requires the expert knowledge of a professional, like Reliable Contracting.
