Stormwater Management

Controlling the retention of stormwater on impervious surfaces such as roofs, parking lots, and building foundations is sometimes a challenge. Partner's Professional Engineers can design solutions to control and disperse stormwater to prevent flooding and erosion on your property.

Stormwater Management

Stormwater Management is the practice of controlling the quality and quantity of water that accumulates as a result of precipitation and runoff. While stormwater is of little concern to natural areas, it can present a problem when these areas are replaced with impervious surfaces such as roofs, parking lots, and foundations. Instead of being absorbed into the ground, excess water runs off into storm drains, drainage ditches, and sewer systems which can cause flooding, erosion, infrastructure damage, and contamination.

Partner’s Professional Engineers have a wealth of experience using Best Management Practices (BMP) and low impact development (LID) techniques and devices, to design control and conveyance systems such stormwater basins, combined sewer systems, and wet-weather green infrastructure.

Stormwater Management includes:

  • control of flooding and erosion
  • control of hazardous materials to prevent release of pollutants into the environment (source control)
  • planning and construction of stormwater systems so contaminants are removed before they pollute surface waters or groundwater resources
  • acquisition and protection of natural waterways or rehabilitation and
  • building "soft" structures such as ponds, swales, wetlands, or Green Infrastructure solutions to work with existing or "hard" drainage structures, such as pipes and concrete channels.
