Stormwater runoff is generated from rain or snowmelt that flows over land or paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops, and does not soak into the ground. Development on wetlands and forests means that stormwater that would have be been absorbed by the land is displaced, flooding people’s property, often repetitively, and causing damage and trauma.
SRC Stormwater Runoff Mismanagement in Santa Rosa County, Florida, seeks to hold Pace city officials responsible for constant flooding putting their homes at risk of loss. Deb is working closely with several other Anthropocene Alliance members in Santa Rosa County.
