Stormwater BMPs

Did you receive a letter from the city that you need to have your stormwater system checked?

Venson Tech offers a free consultation to assure you are in compliance and provide solutions to avoid upcoming fines.

Stormwater refers to rainwater and melted snow that flow over streets, lawns, and other surfaces. Normally, when it seeps into the ground, it gets filtered and replenishes aquifers or joins rivers and streams. However, in developed areas, impervious surfaces such as roofs and pavements hinder natural infiltration. As a result, water flows quickly into storm drains, sewer systems, and drainage ditches, leading to:

• Flooding;
• Stream bank erosion;
• Increased turbidity;
• Habitat destruction;
• Changes in stream flows;
• Infrastructure damage;
• Combined sewer overflows;
• Increased water pollution.

Proper stormwater management is imperative in Virginia and the responsibility of the business, municipal and residential sectors. Best Management Practices (BMPs) are a method by which the adverse impacts of development and redevelopment are controlled. Raising awareness of current stormwater BMPs can help to:

• Protect the environment;
• Improve water quality;
• Save money.

At Venson Tech, we are equipped to help you establish a stormwater management system that aligns with Virginia's Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) regulations. If you already have a system in place, we can ensure that it is well-maintained to meet Virginia's standards, shielding you from potential penalties in the future.
