Our spotlight is on Seattle today as we recall an article from Pascal Mittermaier on Stormwater One, Solutions for Stormwater in Seattle, that provides excellent graphics on the effects of stormwater run-off caused by impervious surfaces. Additionally, the article offers insight to rethinking the problem when re-designing cities to function more like forests so stormwater is absorbed back into the ground.
Due to the rapid growth in Seattle and the surrounding regions stormwater is not filtered by nature and runs through dirty streets and parking lots that are covered in oil and chemicals. Here’s where Torrent is relevant. MaxWell® drywells and other drainage solutions pre-treat and recharge stormwater in an effective, low-cost manner. Immediately we think of the MaxWell® Plus and how perfect those systems would be in Seattle’s large paved areas. Read more about how the MaxWell Plus has become the standard of quality utilized by numerous municipalities in California and Arizona here.
Torrent Resources, a 43-year-old company specializing in drywells, offers the MaxWell®, an engineered system that has been installed in the Southwest United States more than 75,000 times. The MaxWell® is simple, effective, maintainable, and best of all, it’s second to none when it comes to recharging groundwater.Subscribe to our blog to receive updates about new posts and the latest on stormwater news.
