California combats five-year drought with newly passed bills to help fund green infrastructure projects whose benefits are three-fold. The conversation about stormwater is changing and we’ve been there every step of the way to provide you with the facts and additional insight. Read more about these bills here and how they will influence cities to take advantage of stormwater.
We know that stormwater should be treated as an asset vs a nuisance as it had been in the past. Instead of just redirecting the stormwater as quickly as possible into rain gutters, California is embracing ways of capturing, cleaning, and re-purposing it.
“This green infrastructure mimics the natural water cycle, replenishing groundwater while enhancing our communities and ecosystems.”
Steven Moore, a member of the State Water Resources Control Board estimates, “rainfall could provide nearly half a million acre-feet (620 million cubic meters) per year.” That’s a lot of H20 and Torrent knows a thing or two about low-impact development and how drywells can make 620 million cubic meters of water per year a reality.
If you’ve been following our blog you’re familiar with other green infrastructure/LID projects our MaxWells® have been on. With the introduction of these newly passed bills in California chances are that our MaxWell drywells will be popping up on plans even more often. As the times are changing and new law is being introduced, are you prepared to include a MaxWell drywell on your plans?
Whether you’re familiar or unfamiliar with our products, we can provide a free Lunch & Learn that demonstrates the power of our systems and gives insight on how to include them on your next project. The bills may be new but MaxWell has been outperforming other drywells for over 44 years. Learn more about the history of the MaxWell here.
