STORMWATER

Stormwater is the water that results from rainfall. It is also an extremely valuable resource that is highly susceptible to pollution from human activities. Stormwater Management is using structural or non-structural practices to reduce flooding and pollutant load runoff. Collier County’s hydrologic setting is generally dry with occasional intense rainfall during the summer months. The flat coastal plain and high groundwater level creates unique challenges to route and store the water inland, where it can sustain wetlands and replenish the aquifers, while protecting property from flooding and the estuaries from freshwater influxes. Pollution prevention is possible with careful planning and the use of low impact development.
