STORMWATER MANAGEMENT

IMPERVIOUS VS PERVIOUS SURFACES

INTEGRATED STORMWATER MANAGEMENT PLANS

Permeable Surfaces Prevent Flooding

"Permeable paving systems allow stormwater to percolate and infiltrate the surface areas, bypassing the traditionally impervious materials to the soil below. The goal is to control stormwater at the source, reduce runoff and improve water quality." Wikipedia

Water permeability plays a major role in an any environmental protection plan. Most modern municipal construction projects must meet strict environmental standards with the goal of promoting long term ecological sustainability. This includes preserving historic parts of towns and communities along with creating new leisure and recreational areas.

Simply put, reduced permeability increases surface water which flows into the drainage system. During times of heavy rain, the drainage system becomes overloaded, resulting in water flowing directly into our streams, lakes and oceans.

Rainwater is vital to the ecosystem and as such should return back to the natural cycle of things, rather than unfiltered into the drain. Our environmentally friendly rainwater diversion products help catch water by allowing it to permeate through the surface reducing impact on municipal drainage systems.

ROMEX products actively contribute to the groundwater ecosystem while at the same time increase groundscape strength without comprising function or creativity.
