Robust Stormwater Systems Help Preserve Water Quality Despite Floods


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.
