As more and more land is developed, it creates fewer surfaces to naturally absorb water, and more and more places where water builds up and flows into city drainage. This water tends to carry everything from trash to motor oil. Many people assume that runoff water is treated like drinking water, but this is not the case. Traditionally runoff water was simply returned to a nearby lake, stream or river, carrying all this pollution right along with it. New stormwater rules are incentivizing developers to reduce or control runoff and pretreat water close to its source.
AquaShield Inc. offers multiple stormwater products to help engineers address challenging design problems and successfully reduce runoff water.
For example, our Bio-Filter™ Stormwater Biofiltration System is a “tree box” design that provides an innovative and sustainable green infrastructure solution to reduce water that ends up in city drains. Plus it looks great and has very little maintenance.
Our hydrodynamic separator, Aqua-Swirl™ and media filtration systems, Aqua-Filter™ and Aqua-Guardian™, can also be incorporated into a green infrastructure development plan. These devices can be used as part of a treatment train approach by providing pretreatment for subsurface infiltration, rainwater harvesting systems, detention, or other water storage and conservation practices.
Our products work with StormTank and others to ensure treatment of water that is stored and returned to the watershed.
