Whether you have your own water supply or you rely on the water provided by the city, having a reliable source of water is crucial in any home. After all, there are many everyday situations, such as bathing and laundry, that demand you have enough water on hand. According to research conducted by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American family (four people) consumes roughly 400 gallons of water per day.
The amount of water that the average American household uses is eye-popping, and homeowners can only imagine how much that usage contributes toward their monthly water bills. Fortunately, there are many ways homeowners can reduce the amount of water they use at home. One such way would be to have residential stormwater solutions like StormChambers installed at home.
According to data gathered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), floods caused $2,861,426,089 worth of damage in 2014. Over the last 30 years, the NOAA estimates that floods have caused $7.96 billion in damages each year.
With the devastating effects of flooding well-documented, it is important that city government, industrial, and commercial sectors should have robust stormwater systems in place. With these systems in place, water is safely stored and disposed of before a flood can cause significant property damage.
