Stormwater Infiltration Report - Best Management Practice
As part of recent laws passed to minimize the impact that urban runoff has on ocean waters, official environmental agencies now require surface runoff from development sites to be channeled back into the natural ground. If you need a water quality test or stormwater report, AES can help. Sending runoff into the natural soil column is often the best and most economical method of decontaminating urban runoff. An added benefit of this type of intervention is that runoff channeled back into the ground will assist the replenishing of local groundwater levels; groundwater is an important resource in semi-arid areas such as Southern California.
In order for such infiltration systems to be designed properly, the soil column must be tested for percolation potential. To carry out the measurements, often both field in-situ testing and laboratory testing are required. AES engineers and scientists are knowledgeable on all state and city standards currently in use, including those of the County of Los Angeles, the City of Los Angeles, and CalTrans. At AES, we perform these tests frequently for municipal agencies as well as for private clients. Ask us about how you can obtain a stormwater report.
