Stormwater management is an indispensible service throughout urban areas due to the high proportion of impervious land cover. Land cover is impervious when water cannot infiltrate into the ground; examples of this are asphalt, cement, and roofs, all common in urban areas. Stormwater management systems direct concentrated runoff during rainfall from impervious land to streams and rivers to avoid flooding. Additional strategies to avoid flooding, such as rooftop gardens and pervious cement, are used at present.

Climate change is real. Many would argue that planetary warming is a natural occurrence due to cycling between warm and cold periods yet, others might also argue that the earth has been much warmer due to higher carbon dioxide levels in the past. While we are experiencing a warming period in the earth’s cycle, the rate of warming and increase of carbon dioxide levels are larger than anything previously experienced. This is mostly due to the burning of fossil fuels by humans which contributes to greenhouse gas concentrations.
