Benefits - Bio-Filter™ Stormwater Biofiltration System
Green Infrastructure Solution
The AquaShield™ Bio-Filter™ Stormwater Biofiltration System is a “tree box” design that provides a green infrastructure solution to meet LID design practices. The Bio-Filter™ can be used to complement other underground LID practices such as water storage for rainwater harvesting, detention and infiltration. The Bio-Filter™ can be installed in association with streetscapes, parking lots, or other land uses where manufactured biofiltration technology enhances stormwater management on the site.
Easy Installation, Inspection & Maintenance
The Bio-Filter™ design uses a lightweight, durable and modular unit approach with no moving parts. An outlet stub-out allows for quick installation and connection to the stormwater conveyance system. Inspection and maintenance activities are simplified via open and direct access to the trash shelf, pretreatment chamber and biofiltration chamber. Only the upper most portions of the biomedia typically need replacement when warranted.
Proven Performance and Functionality
Independent testing documents that the Bio-Filter™ achieves a high level of performance for the removal of sediment and metals contained in stormwater runoff. Treatment is provided at a flow rate up to 135 inches per hour. The internal bypass design eliminates the need for external bypass structures thereby reducing the overall system footprint and conveyance pipe connections.
