Tag: stormwater collection

The act of collecting stormwater through a structural facility located just below the ground surface, used to collect
runoff for conveyance purposes. Generally located in streets and parking lots, catch basins have grated lids, allowing stormwater from the surface to pass through for collection. Catch basins also include a sumped bottom and submerged outlet pipe (downturned 90 degree elbow, hood, or baffle board) to trap coarse sediment and oils.

Pierce County’s Surface Water Management (SWM) division is charged with maintaining both the natural surface water systems and the stormwater collection and conveyance infrastructure within its unincorporated 1,800-square-mile service area (population 380,000). These areas include an impressive variability in landscapes: from glacial streams of Mt. Rainier to fertile farmlands of

In Pursuit of Data

When accurately obtained and analyzed, water-quality data has the potential to drastically influence our daily lives by identifying problems, verifying solutions, and fueling scientific revelations. Understanding how water moves through our society and how our society affects its condition can improve conservation and management of this necessary global resource. Every

Underground Stormwater Storage Case Studies

Underground Stormwater Storage Case Studies

Underground retention and detention systems continue to increase in popularity as urban and suburban infill prompts careful consideration of proposed land uses on high-value real estate. Placing stormwater management underground frees up space for higher value land uses and greater return on investment. Additionally, trends toward water awareness and reclamation,

Tampa-Proof?

Tampa-Proof?

Water’s been scarce lately, and with the drought exacerbating problems throughout the Southwest, many cities are looking at spending more to get what they need. They can import water from long distances, mandate conservation measures (as the entire state of California has been doing for months), recycle wastewater, or turn
