Green Infrastructure Solution
The Aqua-Ponic™ Biofiltration System is a “planter” design intended to provide a green infrastructure solution to meet LID design practices. The Aqua-Ponic™ can be used to complement other underground LID practices such as water storage for rainwater harvesting, detention and infiltration. The Aqua-Ponic™ can be installed in association with raingardens, streetscapes, parking lots, or other land uses where manufactured biofiltration technology enhances stormwater management on the site.
Easy Installation, Inspection & Maintenance
The Aqua-Ponic™ 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 inlet, vegetation and media. Only the upper most portions of the media components typically need replacement when warranted. While full replacement of media and plants may be necessary depending on site conditions, those tasks can be completed from the surface without the need for special tools or equipment.
Proven Performance and Functionality
Independent testing documents that the filter media used in the Aqua-Ponic™ achieves a high level of performance for the removal of sediment and other pollutants contained in stormwater runoff at a flow rate in excess of other manufactured biofiltration devices.
