The purpose of Storm Water Management is to set forth storm water requirements and criteria which will prevent and control water pollution, and diminish the threats to public health, safety, welfare, and aquatic life due to runoff of storm water from development or redevelopment.
A rain garden is a shallow depression that is planted with deep-rooted native plants and grasses. Rain gardens should be positioned near a runoff source like a downspout, driveway or sump pump to capture rainwater runoff and stop the water from reaching the sewer system.
