Great video explaining Stormwater and Water Cycling

Currently the City of Providence is unable to manage all of the rain it receives. Every year, stormwater carries an unhealthy amount of pollution into our waterways and causes flooding in our streets and basements. Much of Providence’s system of storm drains, catch basins and underground pipes hails back to the 19th century, when the city had far fewer buildings and much less pavement. Today, Providence has developed into a thriving city with around 180,000 inhabitants. As the city continues to grow, we need to search for new solutions that allow us to manage our stormwater while protecting our communities and environment.
