- When rainfall occurs, some of the precipitation infiltrates the soil surface, some is absorbed by plants, and some evaporates into the atmosphere. The remainder, which runs off land surfaces and impervious areas, e.g. roads, parking lots, and roof tops, is what we refer to when speaking of stormwater inspection, treatment and management.
- Whirlwind's stormwater team is dedicated to helping our clients understand the purpose and function of the stormwater system at each of their commercial, retail, and industrial sites.
- Each property, based on location and on-site activities, has different requirements and regulations and requirements regarding Best Management Practices (BMPs) they must follow.
- Lack of maintenance can lead to local flooding, water damage, and costly repairs in addition to corrective actions mandated by the city or other authority.
- It is our job at Whirlwind to help you keep every one of your properties in compliance with all local storm water standards.
Our stormwater consultants are here to provide you with expert advice and assistance:
- Runoff training and elimination
- Stormwater detention
- Rainwater harvesting solutions
- Subsurface filtration design
Stormwater is all water that runs off a land surface before it reaches a natural body of water. Stormwater occurs when the rate of precipitation is greater than it can infiltrate, or soak, into the soil. Runoff also occurs when the soil is saturated. Runoff remains on the surface and flows into streams, rivers, and eventually large bodies such as lakes or the ocean.
Movement of stormwater across soil causes erosion, and it can also carry and deposit untreated pollutants, such as sediment, nutrients and pesticides, into bodies of water.
Hard surfaces such as driveways, sidewalks, and streets block rainfall and other precipitation from being naturally filtered into the ground, leading to even more stormwater and potential pollutant runoff.
Rainwater harvesting offers a small-scale best management practice to reduce stormwater runoff and the problems associated with it. By harvesting the rainfall and storing it, you can slowly release the water back into the soil, either through irrigation or direct application. The water then moves into groundwater table, providing a steady supply of water to local streams and rivers.
