Stormwater management is a crucial aspect of civil engineering that aims to mitigate the negative impacts of urbanization on natural water systems.


As cities grow and develop, they create large amounts of impervious surfaces, such as roads, parking lots, and buildings, which prevent rainwater from naturally infiltrating the ground.


This excess stormwater runoff can lead to flooding, erosion, and pollution of water bodies. In response, civil engineers have embraced Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) as an effective approach to managing stormwater sustainably.
