Ongoing maintenance is critical to the performance of every stormwater system. Without regular maintenance, the system will eventually fail due to buildup and structural issues, and routine upkeep can prevent costly rehabilitative and restorative repairs.
AQUALIS offers comprehensive maintenance and regular servicing solutions to ensure your stormwater systems operate correctly, extend the life of your investment, and avoid costly NOVs.
Maintenance is typically the responsibility of the property owner, and whether the property has an aboveground or underground stormwater system, the objectives remain the same: ensuring the system meets requirements for water quantity (the volume of water stored in and leaving the site) and water quality (the chemical, biological, and physical composition).
Aboveground SCMs (BMPs) can vary depending on the needs of the site, and each requires a different type of stormwater maintenance. With a proper understanding of the system on the site, a proactive maintenance plan for any aboveground system will include:
Underground SCMs are engineered to convey rainwater away from impervious surfaces of the site through a storm sewer system, which will require regular maintenance to ensure proper function. Common underground SCM maintenance plans include:
AQUALIS’ Chief Development Officer Erin Zaske recently spoke about how to prepare stormwater systems for hurricanes and other major storms on the Words on Water podcast. Words on Water is a podcast all about the water sector, presented by the Water Environment Federation, a not-for profit technical and education organization dedicated to protecting public health […]
When you think of water pollution, images of sea life swimming through plastic or agriculture fertilizer runoff likely come to mind. While this physical, more observable, and increasingly pressing form of water pollution tends to be the focus of environmental activism, there is another less talked about the threat to our waterways: thermal pollution. Thermal […]
