Managing Stormwater

These eco-sensitive strategies help keep pollutants out of streams and lakes, replenish groundwater and green the built environment.

Natural landscapes naturally slow the movement of stormwater, and capture and filter some of it as it percolates back into the groundwater supply. But the built environment is dominated by impervious surfaces. Paved surfaces, roofs and building façades change the movement of water over the landscape and increase the volume, speed and temperature of the runoff. Rushing stormwater picks up pollutants, fertilizers and pesticides and can also cause flooding and erosion.

In commemoration of World Water Day on March 22, here are some of the ways GM is reducing water use throughout its global operations.

Water covers more than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, but only three percent of all the water on the planet is fresh water. And less than 1 percent is readily available through rivers and streams to sustain more than 7 billion people on earth.

As members of the global community, both individuals and businesses have a responsibility to protect this resource.
