Stormwater Management Practices Increase in Popularity

The idea of stormwater management is not new, but enterprises everywhere are realizing the benefits it can confer on their business and the environment around it. In a nutshell, the idea is to collect and use and/or treat stormwater before it comes into contact with impervious surfaces. This benefits the environment by preventing runoff and erosion, and it also benefits the business by saving money on water bills and, in many cases, tax breaks and other financial incentives.

The latter especially are proving to be great motivators for businesses to rethink their approach to stormwater management. In many districts where stormwater management fees and or taxes are in place, a litany of financial incentives are also in place to encourage business owners to be proactive about installing and utilizing a stormwater management system. In this article you can read about 5 facilities across the country that have gone above and beyond in their approach, realizing significant benefits to themselves as well as the environment.

One of the ways enterprises can start their approach is by taking stock of and utilizing existing infrastructure. At one facility, an old oil/water separator was converted into a rainwater collection tank that held greywater for plumbing. Tanks can also be used as a marketing and branding tool. At a Whole Foods grocery store in North Carolina, a large rainwater collection tank is located right next to the entrance, which allows customers to see the store’s investments in green technology right before their eyes.
