Stormwater, what is it exactly?

Stormwater is simply rainwater that runs off of impervious surfaces such as buildings, roads, parking lots, driveways, and sidewalks. The more impervious surfaces we develop, the more runoff we create. Did you know only 1% of all the water on the earth's surface is fresh water available for our use. Please watch the video below to get a better understanding of Stormwater Management and the importance of planning today for our water supply in the future.
