Stormwater management can effectively eradicate the harmful effects of pollutants and prevent flood damage.
Stormwater run-off from precipitation such as snow and rain can pollute waterways and crops, cause erosion of agricultural land as well as flooding. Stormwater management is a solution to the risk of pollution.
The increase in roads and buildings in rural areas has increased the peak flow rates and the volume of stormwater which increases flooding and stream erosion. This is due to the increase of impermeable surfaces from roads, buildings, and strained sewage systems.
Stormwater management is essential to prevent stormwater collecting pollutants from pesticides animal waste, oil, grease or sewage and polluting rivers, streams, livestock’s water supply etc.
The stormwater if collected and protected from collecting pollutants can provide an additional water supply to use on the farm. Water treatment can be integrated into the stormwater management system to enable the water supply to be used for drinking water for livestock.
Stormwater management minimises health risks and reduces the risk of flooding and erosion, so contributes to community safety and financial risk management.

Stormwater management is part of SUDS
Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems
Which includes using porous surface materials for drives, schools and public facilities and parks, allowing stormwater drainage. This also goes towards lowering the peak flow of surface water after a storm by lessening impermeable surfaces and increasing drainage.
Stormwater Management is part of Breeam
BREEAM is about using sustainable materials, low impact design and carbon emissions reduction; design durability and resilience; adaption to climate change; and ecological value and biodiversity protection.
