Stonewood works with nature to manage stormwater as close to its source as possible. By controlling stormwater, it reduces the amount of runoff into streams decreasing erosion. When stormwater runs into a river or stream it is harmful to the functions of the water source by pushing things such as sediment, contaminants, and other items that are not natural into the water.
Stonewood frequently performs work related to stormwater management as it often goes hand in hand with river and stream restoration. The goal is to keep it on site, slow it down, and let it soak in. As stormwater soaks into the soil, microbes break down pollutants while native plants absorb water, removing any excess nitrogen and phosphorus. We install green infrastructure known as stormwater control measures (SCMs), which capture, store, and filter stormwater runoff before it enters our waterways.
We take pride in the relationships we form with local inspectors and we strive to go above and beyond when we are faced with challenging sites in sensitive areas.
