dc.description.abstractEnglish: Langenhoven Park is a suburb situated north-west of Bloemfontein, Mangaung. It started as a garden suburb but is increasingly characterised by town house developments. The increase in impervious surfaces contributes to the amount and speed of storm water runoff. The storm water runoff negatively affects the groundwater levels. As an arid country, South Africa cannot afford to lose water, albeit on the surface or as groundwater. Recent literature regards the treatment of storm water at source as the best solution. This article examines the role of legislation in dealing with storm water and how to treat storm water as an asset, and not as a problem. Storm water in Langenhoven Park needs special attention with regard to all the hard surfaces in recent residential developments.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Langenhovenpark is ’n woonbuurt aan die westekant van Mangaung. Dit is begin as ’n ‘tuinstad’, maar tans word dit oorheers deur meenthuisontwikkelings. Die harde oppervlakke het toegeneem wat geen water dreineer nie en dit vermeerder die hoeveelheid en spoed van stormwater. Die wegvoer van stormwater het ’n negatiewe effek op grondwatervlakke. Suid-Afrika as ’n water-skaars gebied kan nie bekostig om water so te verloor nie. Die nuutste gevolgtrekking is dat stormwater by die oorsprong hanteer moet word. In hierdie artikel word gekyk na maniere om stormwater vanaf vanaf wetgewing tot die optrede van ontwikkelaars, huisbewoners en besighede te hanteer. Stormwater word beoordeel as ’n bate vir die gemeenskap en nie as ’n probleem nie. Stormwater in Langenhovenpark moet aandag geniet weens al die harde oppervlakke geskep deur die nuutste residensiële ontwikkelings.af
