a great stormEl Paso, TX is well-known for many things. Rain isn’t one of them. But, although we’re a desert region, that doesn’t mean we never get a drop of rain. In fact, when it rains in the Sun City, it really rains. Need I remind you of Storm 2006? Although this thousand-year storm occurred over a decade ago, the impact of the storm and the floods that devastated El Paso can still be felt to this day. Even smaller storms, by contrast, have led to an undeniable realization that many areas in El Paso don’t have the adequate means of dealing with stormwater. 

For many, this tends to be an afterthought. Sure, the sun shines more often than not in the Sun City (hence our name), but it’s still necessary to always be prepared. A street can become a canal of rainwater in a matter of moments if the drainage is clogged up with debris. If that water has nowhere to go, and the rain keeps on falling, then the water level will rise. This can eventually lead to thousands if not millions of dollars in damage to buildings and vehicles. So, how can one prepare for the next thousand-year flood? Clowe & Cowan of El Paso, LLC has the answer to industries all across the Southwest. Keep reading to learn more about our extensive line of stormwater products. 

Always Be Prepared

The best way to avoid any storm or flood-related issues is by being prepared beforehand. Hindsight is 20-20, after all, so it’s best to think ahead now instead of regretting not doing so later on. So, when it comes to stormwater, the first issue many industries face is what to do with the water itself. Sure, if the city’s drains are able to take the sudden barrage of rainwater as intended, you might have nothing to worry about, but what if something goes wrong? When it rains, it pours and that can cost you and your industry thousands in damages. This is why the treatment, distribution, and extraction of stormwater is so crucial for municipal, industrial, and commercial sectors alike. 


Let’s start with distribution, first. By choosing the right materials for the job, you’ll be able to design an accurate and appropriate path for stormwater to traverse in the event of a barrage. Now that you have the distribution on lock, it’s time to think about what to do with the stormwater itself. This is the treatment step. Since many industries use stormwater on a day-to-day basis, it’s crucial for the stormwater to be properly treated in order for any industry to use it accordingly. 


As one of the most reputable names in the Southwest region in terms of filtration and treatment, Clowe & Cowan of El Paso, LLC is ready to exceed your needs and expectations for treatment and filtration. We carry the best of the best, including Harmsco Filtration and Lakos Filtration Solutions. If you’re unsure about which option is best suited for your needs, then simply give us a call and we’ll guide you accordingly. 


Lastly, you need to have a plan of attack in the instance of flooding or pooling. This is particularly important for the industrial and commercial sectors. Say it rains nonstop for 48 hours and your outdoor shopping center’s design allows for too much of the stormwater to pool. Before long, the water pressure will be too great for the glass doors of the stores to handle. Once the doors break, or even if a bit of water seeps in through the opening, your business partners and those renting out the spaces in your shopping center will have thousands in damaged goods. In order to avoid such a catastrophic outcome, you need to be prepared with the right tools for stormwater extraction. As always, everyone’s needs differ which is why we’re here to provide the knowledge and answers you require in order to make the right decision. 

Finding Uses for Stormwater

The Southwest region’s dry and arid climate makes water incredibly scarce. If your industry uses water on a regular basis, then it might be a great option to consider stormwater solutions.
