Stormwater infrastructure (also called Low Impact Development or LID), addresses the problem of runoff by using vegetation and soil to infiltrate and cleanse rainwater where it falls. Health, equity and sustainability considerations.

Foliar Rainfall Retention

Foliar Rainfall Retention

Trees and forest systems play an important role in the water cycle by intercepting rainfall and regulating water flow to the soil for more efficient stormwater infiltration. Traditional urban development practices have reduced the function of these systems by eliminating the vertical structure (tree canopy cover), removing existing ground cover

CULTEC’s Contactor and Recharger chambers may be installed in a trench configuration along roadsides as an alternative to swales. Not only is an underground stormwater solution easier to maintain, it is also aesthetically more pleasing than traditional swales. The subsurface installation eliminates a potential trash collection site and exposed ponding—which
