Ways Reduce Storm Water Runoff.
Storm water runoff is becoming more and more of a problem that municipalities have to deal with.
Runoff from surfaces such as roofs and pavement are causing flooding, accumulation of pollutants such as greases, salts, fertilizers and pesticides that run into our streams, rivers and waterways. In the older cities storm water often combine with sewer systems that causes over capacity and dump age of sewage into clean bodies of water.
There are numerous ways that homeowners and businesses can stop rain water runoff from carrying pollutant’s and pesticides into our waterways.
Save the Sound, a program of the Connecticut Fund for the Environment has launched a new green infrastructure website, ReduceRunoff.org, to help homeowners and business to implement ways to reduce their runoff.
Installing simple green infrastructures are common sense solutions such as:
- Rain gardens
- Rain barrels
- Permeable pavements
- Green roofs
- Downspout disconnections
Can help manage storm water runoff and allow the soil to absorb the rain water.
