Impervious surfaces, such as asphalt driveways, concrete sidewalks and roofs create stormwater runoff that can run directly into lakes and streams, if not captured and conveyed to a stormwater management measure.
Stormwater Management Design
Stormwater management is the control of runoff from precipitation that flows across the grpund surface and eventually flows into a body of water. Stormwater management is the practice of controlling and managing stormwater runoff by directing the runoff to control devices to contain and release the runoff at a slower rate. Some common practices are vegetated swales, biroretention (rain gardens), permeable pavers and filter strips.
Puraflo Peat Fiber Biofilter Systems are one of the most versatile & reliable treatment systems on the market.
Individual Wastewater Treatment Systems
Individual wastewater treatment systems last about 20-years. As systems age, they require more maintenance and upkeep, possibly needing a complete upgrade. Enhanced Treatment Units (ETU's) or "Engineered" Individual Wastewater Treatment Systems have greatly improved the wastewater industry. There are a vast amount of products on the market, from traditional stone & pipe laterals, Eljen-Geotextile Sand Filter Systems (GSF), PuraFlo Peat Biofilter Systems, Presby Advanced Enviro-Septic Treatment Systems.
These are some of the highest performing wastewater treatment systems on the market. Each site's conditions may dictate which system is the most effective and least costly.
Implementing green infrastructure techniques, such as rain gardens and permeable paver systems can reduce the amount of runoff from a property.
Commercial Site Design
Site Design starts with a good plan. Planning and designing for stormwater management and wastewater treatment are critical to the long-term success of a business.
Site Design & Permitting
Site design focuses on all of the exterior components outside of the building or dwelling being constructed. Soil disturbances from construction activities can cause sediment and erosion to leave a project site.
Low-impact development (LID) techniques can reduce the amount of disturbance to a site while focusing the development on the best locations on the property and minimizing impact.
