STORMWATER MANAGEMENT

Murphy has installed storm water management systems at several of our logistics campuses to mitigate the flow of precipitation from entering municipal water systems. Logistics campuses are highly developed spaces with a number of paved surfaces that resist water. As a result, rain water, melting snow and other precipitation can run offsite into municipal storm water systems, and in many cases, lead to environmental impact fees. Murphy has invested in an ecologically friendly solution to handle this problem by installing holding ponds, retention basins, rain gardens and native prairies at many sites. These systems improve water quality and recharge ground water. Our customers benefit as we reduce our operational costs by eliminating environmental impact fees.
