Protecting Our Waters and Your Property
Stormwater Drainage For Regulatory Compliance
STORM (“Stormwater Tech”) is a plumbing intelligence platform providing storm water technology solutions by specializing in commercial storm drain flow maintenance and monitoring. Our storm drain technology offers sensors & monitoring benefits- mobile app with alerts, real-time data insights, risk mitigation against flooding & compliance violations, and cost control.
We began serving commercial and industrial clients across Texas in 1994 as EarthCare, until acquired by PE firm. In the 1990’s stormwater regulations were just evolving and our focus was pragmatic drainage issues, often involving trash & debris or serving MUD Districts and numerous stormwater engineers. Our team came back together in 2015 and now we target this niche with the STORM team.
Drain Flow Maintenance & Monitoring
Storm water drainage is a key solution to the problem of controlling storm water flow. Some may believe storm water management is just another strict regulation and unwanted costs to construction projects or property ownership and management. In urban environments, storm water can create major issues:
- Flooding risk – due to the volume of water, failed drainage, blocked drainage (often trash)
- Property damage – due to failed, overflowing drainage
- Business disruption – due to slow or blocked drainage
- Erosion – due to the increased speed of the water
- Water pollution – due to overflowing drainage & contaminants in water runoff
- Regulatory violation – due to poor maintenance & non-compliance
Detention Basin/Retention Pond Service
In most suburban neighborhood or office communities, during heavy rainfall, storm water drainage delivers large volumes of water flow to receiving basins or retention ponds as a part of flood management.
Our landscape management history, combined with our sewer & stormwater flow expertise, provides the maintenance background to mitigate risks and sustain healthy operations in budget.
Regular Inspection & Compliance
Flow Control & Water Quality
Storm water drainage is designed to effectively move excess rainwater from commercial, industrial and community properties to control and manage flood risks and reduce water pollutants collected from surface runoff.

Specialty Products and Services
STORM technicians can offer storm monitoring technology solutions, powered by solar panels, control panel and pump repair or replacement, and many other product offerings to keep or improve your storm drainage system healthy and in compliance:
Stormwater Pump Lift Stations: Maintenance & Monitoring
In 1994, our STORM team began serving Texas with lift station service. At that time, most lift station units were only pumping sanitary sewers, but after the numerous hurricanes & flooding, new stormwater rules & regulations were introduced. Today, nearly every commercial building has a storm lift station unit and a detention pond. Our STORM technicians are professionally trained in pump & control panel repairs or replacement.
Hydrodynamic Separator Filters: Commercial Properties
In many cities & counties, new stormwater building regulations have been imposed that require the installation and maintenance of hydrodynamic separators to filter contaminants and debris collected in surface water runoff during heavy rainfall. STORM technicians are trained to service, clean or replace filter cartridges on any of the numerous storm models.
Industrial Stormwater Management: Plant Experts
The STORM team has a long history working within the refineries, chemical plants and marine ports. Many of our 1st storm drainage accounts involved stormwater management challenges after a heavy Texas rain in the petrochemical plants along ship channel and the Texas the Gulf Coast.
