Roof Drains and Bare Soil

Photo: David Jenkins

Thousands of gallons of clean rainwater draining off the roof deck onto bare soil turning into thousands of gallons of water that’s too dirty to discharge without treatment. With pre-planning, a temporary collection system could have been developed and installed to contain, collect and convey the clean water to an existing drainage system. Without such a system, the dirty water had to be treated chemically to reduce the turbidity enough to discharge to the storm system.
