Storm Drainage in Rancho Cucamonga, CA by Allstar Home Services
As a homeowner, it’s important for you to make sure that the water on your property is safe to drink. But it’s also important to make sure that the water leaving your property is safe for the environment. When we build homes with roofs and other flat surfaces, we disrupt the natural flow of storm water. After a period of time, this could have many negative consequences for the environment we live in and the natural world around us. Local laws require you to have some form of storm water management in place so that you can divert this water away from the world around you.

What Makes Storm Water Management Necessary?
There are a number of reasons local, state, and federal laws usually mandate some form of storm water runoff management. The storm water runoff from your home could eventually clog the city’s storm drains and cause flooding in the area. Additionally, water that flows from the roof, onto your driveway, and past other manmade structures can collect pesticides, oil, and other sources of contamination that pollute wildlife and could flow into an ocean, lake, or stream.
What Types of Storm Drainage Solutions Are Available?
There are a number of storm drainage solutions available that you and your plumber can discuss to figure out how to best manage your storm water. For residential purposes, one of the most common storm water drain systems is the driveway cross, which is a metal grate in the ground with holes that sometimes take on an interesting design. A dry well is another common solution, which is an area filled with gravel that collects runoff which nearby plants can take advantage of. A rain barrel is a simple solution that fills with runoff that you can use to water plants or rinse your boots (but not for drinking!).
