As development around the world occurs, natural earth surfaces are replaced by buildings, roads, and parking lots.  This substantial increase in impermeable surfaces is rapidly creating a huge demand for improved storm water management.

Storm water management has long been considered a burden to developers around the world due to the high cost of developed land.  Due to the increased concerns, new technology is making it possible to provide adequate storm water management without sacrificing valuable land.

Lodestar has been directly involved with several such projects including underground detention and retention ponds, diversion, and sediment filtration systems.  Additionally we maintain a staff of personnel certified as Best Management Practices (BMP)  specialists with regard to storm water management and erosion control.
