Stormwater Issues

One crucial aspect of managing stormwater runoff to prevent flooding your neighbors is to ensure proper grading and drainage on your property. This involves directing runoff away from neighboring properties and into appropriate infiltration areas or stormwater management systems. Implementing features like swales, French drains, or rain gardens can help capture and absorb excess water, reducing the risk of flooding downstream. It’s also important to communicate and coordinate with neighbors to address any shared drainage concerns and find mutually beneficial solutions.

Take action today by investing in professional stormwater management services. Together, we can protect our environment, prevent flooding, and ensure clean, sustainable water resources for generations to come. Contact us now to learn more and make a difference!

My visit back to my old stomping grounds at Camden County Technical Schools brought back a flood of memories and nostalgia. It was great to reconnect with my teacher, Brian Burns who is an Ornamental Horticulture specialist. Brians passion inspired me at a young age and his ability to maximize each students potential  is a big part of our success today. 

It was a great honor to be a guest speaker and to meet the passionate students at CCTS. Their enthusiasm and dedication can lead to great accomplishments both academically and in the Landscape Architecture career path. Encouraging and nurturing that passion is crucial for their growth and success. I had some great interactions and look forward to revisiting the campus again in the near future. 

Camden County Technical Schools is a public school district located in Gloucester Township. It offers career and technical education programs for high school students, providing them with hands-on training and skills development in various fields such as engineering, healthcare, culinary arts, and more. It aims to prepare students for both college and career success.

Improperly routing a sump pump discharge in Egg Harbor Township, NJ, can lead to various negative effects, including:

1. Flooding: If the discharge is directed towards the foundation or a low-lying area, it can cause flooding, especially during heavy rains or snowmelt.

2. Soil Erosion: Excessive water flow from the sump pump can erode soil, leading to landscape damage and instability.

3. Water Damage to Structures: Water pooling near the foundation can seep into basements or crawl spaces, causing moisture issues, mold growth, and structural damage over time.

4. Code Violations: Many municipalities, including Egg Harbor Township, have regulations governing sump pump discharge to prevent flooding and environmental damage. Improper discharge can result in code violations and fines.

5. Environmental Impact: Discharging sump pump water into storm sewers or nearby water bodies without proper filtration can introduce pollutants and contaminants, harming local ecosystems.

To mitigate these negative effects, it’s essential to ensure that sump pump discharge is directed away from the foundation, towards a suitable drainage area, and in compliance with local regulations. Installing a proper discharge pipe with a discharge extension, splash pad, or underground drainage system can help manage water effectively and prevent potential damage. Consulting with a licensed plumber or drainage specialist can provide guidance on proper sump pump discharge solutions tailored to your property’s needs and local regulations.
