Tag: stormwater runoff

Stormwater runoff is rainfall that flows over the ground surface. It is created when rain falls on roads, driveways, parking lots, rooftops and other paved surfaces that do not allow water to soak into the ground. Stormwater runoff is the number one cause of stream impairment in urban areas.

Managing Daily Cover and Drainage at MSW Landfill Sites

Today’s municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills are much more than places to dump household trash. They’re engineered facilities that are designed to hold and isolate the trash from the environment and are governed by both federal and state regulations.

Landfill designers and operators face two main challenges to the integrity of

CULTEC
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

Project Profile: Gray Combined With Green—Retrofit of Existing Bioretention Facility With High-Flow Bioretention Technology

Surface stormwater treatment practices have a common use in development projects to provide collection and control of contaminants generated from runoff from impervious surfaces. Common surface stormwater treatment practices include wet ponds, grass swales and channels, and bioretention facilities. Grass swales and bioretention facilities rely upon filtration provided by the

Solutions for the Drainage Dilemma

Solutions for the Drainage Dilemma

A quick perusal of once-popular English literature would show that the Victorians, and indeed a century of their predecessors, were eager to adopt any innovations to improve drainage. While most agrarian societies fought weather, taxes, and landlords to keep crops in the field, drainage for them and the estate managers
