POLYDRAIN FIRSTFLUSH®

STORMWATER FILTRATION FOR URBAN RUNOFF

The “first flush effect” refers to the initial surface runoff during a rainstorm and the resulting surge of concentrated water pollution. Corresponding high sheet flows wash the pollutants through storm sewers to local surface waters. Our engineers created a Best Management Practice (BMP) to counter the negative effects of urban runoff.

Any filtration system will collect debris, capture hydrocarbons, and should reduce pollutants. Our solution also manages the significant overland flow during initial runoff events. We prioritize the treatment of a first flush event by allowing prolonged rainfall to bypass the treatment media. This bypass minimizes pulsing and prevents concentrated pollutants from the “first flush effect” from continuing on to downstream waterways.

FirstFlush® is the perfect sustainable drainage solution to meet this critical stormwater filtration challenge.

OIL-WATER SEPARATOR

GRAVIMETRIC PRE-TREATMENT TANK

TrenchFormer is uniquely positioned to collect non-point source (NPS) pollution from urban runoff. Our Oil-Water Separator is a cost-effective addition that separates these urban pollutants into their discrete components. Using a baffle plate, stand-pipe assembly, and gravity, our system separates oil, water, and solid particles from the site’s wastewater.

Uniquely, the TrenchFormer Oil-Water Separator is constructed using a light-weight cast-in-place forming system that installs without the necessity of heavy equipment. The basic system contains no moving parts. Periodic removal of captured oil and solids in the only maintenance required.

SANDTRAP

MODULAR SEDIMENT AND DEBRIS INTERCEPTORS

Sand traps remove sand and other pollutant debris from any connected drainage system. During storm events, our gravity separation method captures both sediment and buoyant materials. It is also a 100% natural process with low operating costs and no chemicals that might cause environmental concerns.

These pre-cast modular catch basin interceptors are reliable, efficient water filtration solutions. Use them to prevent clogs and keep downstream waterways and storm-water systems clean of contaminants.
