Stormwater management is important to all of us because the water that runs down our streets after a rain, or off of lawns and parking lots ends up (often untreated) in our water ways causing…
-algae blooms and a buildup of pollutants.
This flush of water leads to contaminated waterways,…
such as Eagle Lake are losing depth due to runoff. Hardscape surfaces such as asphalt, concrete and buildings cover up the ground which once filtered and replenished the ground water. Minnesota is known as “The Land of Ten Thousand Lakes,” and polluted stormwater affects all of us.
According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Minnesota has:
Number of lakes:

11,842 (10+ acres)
Number of natural rivers and streams:
6,564 (69,200 miles)
Total Area Covered by Lakes and Rivers (deep water):
2,560,299 acres
Total surface water area including wetlands:
13,136,357 acres

Stormwater management affects us all, that is why we at PERCOA Inc. are actively working to combat stormwater pollution and runoff.
Join us and consider using PERCOA in place of old pavers or new permeable pavers
PERCOA because clean water is a global responsibility
