Stormwater

Get in Touch

Stormwater is water that comes from rainfall – it either soaks into exposed soil or remains on top of impervious surfaces, like pavement or rooftops. Stormwater will eventually evaporate off a level surface, but most often it flows as runoff to another location. Stormwater designed drains typically run into our ecosystem, however, the rainfall collects contaminants on these urban surfaces and carries the contaminants into the environment.  

This can have a negative impact on the surrounding environment and wildlife. Our team is experienced in monitoring, testing and sampling stormwater runoff.
