Stormwater runoff is water that flows over hard surfaces and across the land. This water is then routed into drainage systems and ultimately into our natural areas such as creeks, lakes and wetlands. Underground stormwater detention systems are a structural Best Management Practice (BMP) used to control the flow of stormwater.
BMPs are designed to reduce stormwater volume, peak flows, and/or nonpoint source pollution through evapotranspiration, infiltration, detention, and filtration. Detention systems work as an integral part of the storm sewer system to provide a temporary storage area for excess stormwater then releasing it slowly over time. These systems are typically installed beneath parking lots, streets and parks to maximize property usage and lower development costs.
