With the construction and development of our cities came “stormwater” – the rain that runs off of homes, roads and parking lots. Because the landscapes of our watersheds have been altered by urbanization, development and non-point-source pollution, the capacity for stable, healthy waterways is too often exceeded. Municipalities and developers can prevent overloading existing stormwater systems and avoid fines, fees or penalties by finding new ways to slow, store or use rain before it becomes stormwater runoff. Recognizing rainwater as a valuable asset has given a new approach to stormwater management and EcoGro reflects this new concept of green solutions. By reconstructing the natural processes that moderate and filter stormwater runoff we can improve the quality of our local waterways.
