Stormwater Treatment

Product Description

Stormwater is water brought about through precipitation from melting of ice and snow, or rainfall. Stormwater is able to seep into the ground and evaporate stream across solid surfaces, this creates what we call surface water.


Stormwater treatment utilize membranes or filtration media to eliminate contamination from surface water. The filtration media or membrane traps and prevents the passage of contaminants as water travels through the filter. Industrial facilities usually require customized media and membranes for the purposes of filtering various metals such as lead, zinc, aluminum, copper, etc. Substances such as debris, solids, trash and slits are too large for passage through the filter and are absorbed prior to the filtration unit.


Maintaining the stormwater treatment systems is necessary for continuous and effective operation at the level at which they were manufactured. If not kept up to a specific standard, then the systems will be unable to thoroughly remove the contaminants as they pass through the filtration units, and ultimately harm the environment. Maintaining these systems usually consists of paying close attention to the condition of the multi media filters and separators that capture contaminants, replacing media bags, and adjusting natural features such as swales and ponds.


Experts in the stormwater treatment industry are given the heft tasks of assessing, approving, and employing treatment solution that increase the quality of water and the environment for both the present and future. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of water treatment systems in use for the treatment of surface water, which is needed for the various types of stormwater pollution.

The stormwater treatment method is used to enhance the quality of stormwater runoffs and lower its volume, peak flow, or any sort of fusion. Stormwater treatment is the procedure of eliminating unclean matter such as trash, oil, dirt and others from stormwater runoff. Furthermore, contaminants from the surface water runoff are captured before reaching important water sources including oceans, lakes, and rivers. Prevention works much more effectively than eradication since once the contamination is in the environment, it is very difficult to remove.
