Working with Metropolitan Council Environmental Services, Camp Dresser & McKee (CDM) evaluated the feasibility of using stormwater runoff for irrigation and other purposes that traditionally rely on potable water. Effective implementation of stormwater reuse practices can lower demands on drinking water supplies and reduce impacts from aquifer decline, while simultaneously reducing mass loading of pollutants to surface waters.
