Conventional Storm Drainage Which Recharges the Groundwaterby Raymond A. Pittman, Thomas & Hutton Engineering Co, Savannah, United States,
Abstract: Since the demand for water is on the rise, more resourceful means of retaining and controlling the release of stormwater is needed. This retained stormwater may then be used for aesthetic scenery, drinking water supply, irrigation supply or simply as a means of raising the ground water table. In the Coastal Empire of the Carolinas, regulatory authorities are requiring developers to utilize this retained stormwater to revitalize transitional wetlands adjacent to developments.
