Storm water pollution controls
Posted on: Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009 at 12:14 pm
Storm water pollution has become a major environmental hazard. Storm water may be referred to any form of liquid which comes into existence due to precipitation process. Water derived as a result of snow melting may also be termed as storm water.
After rainfall the ground absorbs the rainwater. However, there is never 100% absorption. Problem arises when a large volume of water remain unabsorbed and therefore flows on the surface of the ground. This water washes away all the dirt and pollutants present on the surface of the earth and thereby result in storm water pollution.
To fight storm water pollution environmentalists have devised many ways:
Storm water harvest: the storm water is not allowed to run freely and therefore pollute the area. This is done by trapping the storm water in an enclosed area.
Infiltration: this is done to allow the water to be absorbed in the ground.
