treatment at a wastewater treatment plant. • Storm water pollution a˚ects water quality and the environment. • Storm water pollution reduces how much we can use streams, rivers and lakes for ˛shing, swimming and drinking water. Day-to-day activities are major causes of water pollution. Rain or melting snow washes pollution into waterways. The Passaic River Flood Tunnel is a proposal for a flood relief tunnel from the central portion of the Passaic River basin in Passaic County, New Jersey in an area where a number of large tributary rivers join the Passaic River and severe flooding occasionally occurs. The tunnel would provide relief to an area that experiences severe flooding events which cause tens of millions in property.

Work is about to begin on the last leg of tunnels in Chicagos massive, award-winning flood and pollution control program. Started in the October of , the Tunnel and Reservoir Plan is a long-term effort to increase the storage capacity of the Chicago wastewater system during severe storm events. The Los Angeles River Tunnels are a water drainage tunnel system connected to the Los Angeles River. When water gets too high in the river, due to rainstorms or floods, the water is diverted through the tunnel system in the concrete walls of the man-made river and is drained out in various points throughout the city to prevent flooding of the river and nearby areas. There are various access.

  Hurricane Harvey, which caused severe destruction in the area of Houston, Texas, in , prompted local flood officials to seek out a more comprehensive approach to stormwater management. Harris County Flood Control District recently announced results from a feasibility study that would install a large-diameter stormwater tunnel system beneath Houston. U.S. Marine Corps.   Now that the stormwater diversion tunnel has been completed and tested — at a cost $15 million higher than originally anticipated — the next step is to work with FEMA to remove the flood zone.

Houston, Texas, considers massive underground stormwater tunnel project Although downtown Houston, Texas, sits only about 15 m (50 ft) above sea level, enough room exists underground to build a massive tunnel system for stormwater conveyance, according to the preliminary results of a Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD) inquiry.

A storm drain, storm sewer (United Kingdom, U.S. and Canada), surface water drain/sewer (United Kingdom), or stormwater drain (Australia and New Zealand) is infrastructure designed to drain excess rain and ground water from impervious surfaces such as paved streets, car parks, parking lots, footpaths, sidewalks, and roofs.

Storm drains vary in design from small residential dry wells to large. The first phase of the Clean Rivers Project to control combined sewer overflows to the Anacostia River is complete.

Dubai Municipality has announced the successful completion of package 1 of its deep tunnel storm water system project. Package 1 comprised a pumping station with a capacity to move 30 cubic metres of water per second, as well as an overflow structure with m sea outfall, plus three 2,mm outfall pipes at Jebel Ali.

The SMART (Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel) project is an innovative solution to both of these problems.
