Stormwater Management in Kansas City
Request Your Appointment
There are several types of stormwater management systems and each requires routine maintenance. Municipal, county, and state governments are increasing regulations and requirements for the installation and yearly maintenance of these systems and are pushing to replace traditional stormwater detention centers with underground stormwater infiltration systems.
Stormwater infiltration systems allow commercial and government properties to better utilize the natural resources of the land such as watersheds, rain gardens for native plants and reduce the visual obstruction of a traditional stormwater detention center. Unfortunately, when commercial properties are not aware of or are not maintaining their underground stormwater infiltration system, backup flooding and structural damage can occur. Blockages of the stormwater runoff or storm drains are high-risk areas and can be addressed with a stormwater management program from A-1 Sewer & Septic, as we are one of the few companies in the greater Kansas City metro area that are certified in stormwater management and stormwater maintenance.
Maintaining a stormwater system with the best management practices will keep costs down to municipalities, as well as practices to keep pollutants out of the water resources with pollution prevention practices. Stormwater pollution and the stormwater quality are all affected by the sediment, pollutants such as those that use lawn chemicals and pesticides, pet waste and other debris as the stormwater discharge from parking lots and storm drains are directed to the nearest runoff during rainstorms. Preventing this will maintain higher water quality and a certified stormwater management company can help ensure your system can take advantage of the efforts you have in place for pollution prevention.
It is vital to maintain your underground stormwater infiltration system annually. You may view a sample manufacturer’s system maintenance handbook by clicking this link.
