Downingtown, PA Stormwater Runoff Management Tools

  • Stormwater Runoff Management using detention ponds or wet ponds.

    Incoming stormwater runoff can replace pond water in wet ponds. The new runoff is held in the pond until the following storm when the pond water flows out. Many pollutants from runoff are able to sink to the pond floor because of this system. This keeps contaminants out of the river while only providing rudimentary flood protection.

  • Stormwater Runoff Management using basins for infiltration.

    Infiltration basins collect and store stormwater until part or all of it filters into the surrounding soil. Fine-grained pollutants are effectively removed by this method, while coarse-grained contaminants can clog infiltration basins.

  • Stormwater RunRunoff Management using porous pavement.

    Stormwater runoff is allowed to infiltrate porous pavement, such as interlocking tiles or bricks, and into the soil. This eliminates fine grain contaminants while also preventing erosion.

  • Stormwater Runoff Management using inlets for water quality.

    Oil/grease separators are another name for water quality inlets. Before being discharged to the storm drain or infiltration basin, these separators remove sediments, oils, and greases from parking lots.
