Stormwater Management Facilities and StructuresFind more information from the following link(s):
Stormwater management facilities are structures that are used to remove pollutants, prevent stream damage and erosion, prevent flooding, and protect public health. The structures can be on the surface (e.g., wet and dry ponds, bioretention basins, sand filters) or underground (e.g., infiltration trenches, oil-grit separators, and underground storage structures). There are more than 4,000 stormwater facilities in the County.
