throughout the county to address the problems of flooding and drainage. Six detailed watershed plans (DWPs) identifying flood and erosion prone areas have been identified. The DWPs provide comprehensive evaluations of existing conditions and stormwater management
Poor hydraulic design of major water, waste water and power generation systems gives rise to inefficiencies due to excessive levels of turbulence or, at the other extreme, lack of turbulence, restricted throughputs, pumping inefficiencies, and induced erosion . All of these factors can have a ...
and sequesters atmospheric carbon dioxide (C02); filters air and water pollutants; stabilizes soil to prevent or reduce erosion ; provides wildlife habitat; decreases solar heat gain; lowers the public cost of stormwater management infrastructure and
benefits, such as increasing floodwater retention, reducing the damage from flood events, improving water quality , reducing erosion , and improving fish and wildlife habitat. See also: " NJ Gov signs legislation to better protect major water treatment plant
animal life. They serve as important buffers by filtering pollutants, shielding coastal areas from storms and preventing soil erosion . Estuaries also provide a safe haven and protective nursery for small fish, shellfish, migrating birds, and coastal shore
program fee, which is about $5 per month for a medium sized property, was intended to fund projects to reduce the flooding, erosion and pollution problems caused by storm water run off. Because the district anticipated legal challenges it sought and obtained
Quality Incentives Program to help farmers and ranchers implement conservation practices to conserve water, protect fields from erosion and improve access to water for livestock Invested $5 million in emergency watershed protection Provided $7.6 million to
states. These watershed management projects provide an estimated $2.2 billion in annual benefits in reduced flooding and erosion damages, and improved recreation, water supplies and wildlife habitat for an estimated 47 million Americans. For example
sorely lacked funding to install main valves in their systems to isolate the towns being served. With the passage of time, erosion of the concrete pipe caused leakages. High pressure and reverse flows caused fittings failures and, until recently, whenever
Offers epoxy-based repair composites and coatings to repair and protect water and wastewater treatment facilities and equipment from common problems occurring in the industry, including erosion , corrosion and chemical attack.
