Stormwater
What is stormwater? 
Stormwater is a water coming from precipitation events (rain, snow/ice melt). When stormwater falls onto your roof, driveway or on the road, it becomes runoff and must be managed. Stormwater is dealt with in a couple of ways. One is by letting it soak into the ground. Two is by letting it evaporate. Both as mother nature intended.

As we build more and more cities, we are also building more hard/impervious surface. When
stormwater falls onto your roof, driveway, or on the road, it becomes run-off. It has to be managed through a stormwater system similar to this picture by a network of catch basins, manholes, and storm ponds to prevent flooding.
