When implementing any of these green stormwater infrastructure solutions, care should be taken to not impact adjacent properties through additional stormwater flow. Precautions include providing a proper safe overflow to the existing combined sewer system in larger storm events, and allowing for appropriate installation distances between any green stormwater infrastructure solutions and the residence, as well as other property lines. If you experience problems with any water or sewer piping on your property, you should contact a registered plumber.
