Stormwater Control Measures
Many of these measures are hidden in plain sight as attractive landscaping designs and are usually low-maintenance. Don't be fooled by their simplicity; careful consideration needs to be taken when designing these systems because each property's unique features and needs vary greatly.
SCMs that are poorly designed or poorly maintained can be a major liability for property owners if failure causes damage to property or the environment. Regular maintenance ensures that any problems are addressed well-before they become major issues. The last thing you need is a stormwater system that doesn't do its job!
