Water Everywhere? Here's the Homeowner’s Guide to Stormwater Management
If your home, neighborhood or community is beset with water run-off issues, here's a valuable guide to deal with it.
Entitled "The New Hampshire Homeowner’s Guide to Stormwater Management: Do-It-Yourself Stormwater Solutions," this practical guide provides fact sheets with step-by-step instructions to install do-it-yourself stormwater treatment practices such as dry wells and rain gardens.
These stormwater treatment practices (called low impact development (LID) practices) help protect nearby streams and ponds from stormwater pollution, and help reduce flooding, create wildlife habitat, recharge groundwater, and conserve water resources.
The New Hampshire Homeowner’s Guide to Stormwater Management was developed to help residential homeowners better manage stormwater on their properties. It can also be used by communities as an outreach tool to encourage better stormwater management on private properties.
