Addressing Headwater Drainage with Regenerative Stormwater Conveyance (RSC)

Regenerative Stormwater Conveyance System

Headwater streams provide many ecologic and water quality benefits.  In a natural setting, these small drainage tributaries filter rainwater, recharge groundwater, and dissipate water velocity while transporting sediment from upland elevations downstream to larger water bodies.  It is not surprising that people tend to populate upland areas where flooding may be mitigated by hard surface stormwater conveyance structures.  As a result of this trend, headwater streams fall victim to residential and commercial development, water quality suffers, and hard surface drainage methods give stormwate
