Stormwater is the water that runs over the land during a rain event. In places where impervious surface is increased (by homes and roads), stormwater is collected on these surfaces and doesn’t soak into the ground, thus creating stormwater runoff. To prevent flooding, engineers design storm sewer systems to capture the runoff in catch basins and direct it to ponds or areas that treat the water before infiltrating it back into the ground or sending it down stream to large lakes and rivers.

In residential neighborhoods, the two most commonly used curb types are surmountable curb and barrier curb.
