  • StormwaterPA - Rethinking Basins: Putting Nature to Work
    in mind Their purpose was to collect runoff from roads buildings parking lots and the like and channel it away from the site and into a nearby stream as quickly as possible In doing their job they created erosion and water quality problems downstream The current thinking about basins calls for slowing the flow of runoff spreading it out and enabling natural processes like evapotranspiration and infiltration to return it to the atmosphere or soak it into the ground The result better water quality and healthier streams Our partners at the Pennsylvania Environmental Council in cooperation with a regional basin retrofit advisory team have developed a series of simple low cost retrofit measures that can be employed to help protect our waterways and control pollution As an added bonus they ve developed an interactive look at the problems associated with traditional stormwater basins and the various ways retrofitted basins can Slow Spread and Soak the water from runoff Like the Video Want to Spread its Ideas Share a Mobile Friendly Snippet Check out these mobile ready shorts from the case study Share them directly via newsletters and social media by embedding the Vimeo codes Use the QR Code images on
