Storm Drainage Systems: How to Recapture Water

Storm Drainage Systems play in an important role when it comes to Best Management Practices (BMP's) that mitigate storm water runoff. We are now in what is considered "wet season" for recapturing rainfall by using various forms of storm drainage systems. The wet season is a time period characterized from October 1st through April 30th, according to construction storm water BMP performance standards.

The more that open land is covered by roads, buildings, parking lots, etc., the less we will be able to recapture rain water naturally, which directly feeds natural underground aquifers. Therefore, several ways have been devised to recapture storm water using various drainage methods, such as those used in pipeline infrastructure; bioswales, retention and detention storm drainage systems, storm water chambers, porous paving, and other storm water capture and reuse systems.
