Stormwater runoff is one issue in stormwater compliance that warrants communities and industries to turn to stormwater management contractors in Houston, stormwater companies in Houston, storm water services or stormwater inspection. Because of the complexities of stormwater issues, RSB Environmental, based in Houston, Texas, will aid you in your understanding of stormwater compliance and stormwater solutions.
Stormwater runoff is generated from rain and snowmelt events that flow over land or impervious surfaces. Examples are paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops, because the rain and snowmelt soaks into the ground. The runoff picks up pollutants like trash, chemicals, oils, and dirt/sediment. These can harm rivers, streams, lakes, and coastal waters. So, to protect these resources, communities, construction companies, industries, and others, use stormwater controls, known as best management practices (BMP’s). These BMP’s filter out pollutants and/or prevent pollution by controlling it at its source.
The NPDES,National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System, stormwater program regulates some stormwater discharges from three potential sources: municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4’s), construction activities, and industrial activities. Operators of these sources might be required to obtain an NPDES permit before they can discharge stormwater. This permitting mechanism is designed to prevent stormwater runoff from washing harmful pollutants into local surface waters.
- protection of wetlands and aquatic ecosystems,
- improved quality of receiving water bodies,
- conservation of water resources,
- protection of public health, and
- flood control.
