The SmartSWM system allows schools, universities and churches to contribute to cleaner water, make more efficient use of their land and create a living classroom for students.
Retrofitting existing stormwater ponds typically provides a return on investment by reducing cost, erosion and maintenance. New facilities can give designers greater flexibility and even free up additional land for planned expansions.
Educational institutions often take full advantage of the opportunity to use the SmartSWM system as a hands-on teaching tool. Online, real-time monitoring allows teachers and students to lecture on the hydrologic cycle and why the smart stormwater pond anticipates and responds to rain events. SmartSWM technology can springboard to lessons about erosion, water pollution, green infrastructure, climate resiliency, recharging aquifers, flooding, runoff, solar energy and more.
SmartSWM facilities are a “green infrastructure” solution that sends a great message to the community about proactive environmental stewardship.
CMAC stormwater solutions are tried and proven Best Management Practices (BMPs).
