Description

Stormwater can be held in drains for some time to infiltrate and make up soil moisture. This will be good for roadside trees. Further percolation can make up the groundwater table levels. This is a better strategy than allowing to enter sewage treatment plants or even bio accumulate non-point sources of pollution in low lying areas.
