BORGERT PRODUCTSIn the US, continuing development increases impervious areas; therefore, an increase in stormwater management is required. The current conditions have resulted in problems from poor water quality to frequent flooding and erosion issues. Current infrastructures are over-burdened and costly to expand. As a solution for managing stormwater, Borgert Products developed and patented a permeable pavement system called FiltraPave (Patent# 737,465/737,466). The FiltraPave system is designed to remove surface water runoff and its pollutants, eliminating the need for costly expansion to infrastructure and wasteful detention ponds. FiltraPave controls the water while serving as walkways, plazas, parking lots, or

They will experience the source of those effects with visits to construction sites within the I-95 express lane expansion corridor as well as participate in the installation of stormwater management BMPs being installed by Angler
TRITON STORMWATER SOLUTIONS Innovative design is a hallmark of the Triton Stormwater Solutions’ system, and nowhere is this more evident than in the Main Header Row. Triton’s Main Header Row can be utilized as part of a treatment train or by itself. Treating the stormwater in the Main Header Row allows for longer service life and targeted pollutants, such as hydrocarbons, which can be captured if used in conjunction with the Triton Reusable Filter Media Puck system. Because the sediment is captured in the Main Header Row, routine cleaning is confined to this single row of chambers, eliminating the costly cleaning of the distribution
WATERSHED GEO HydroTurf Advanced Revetment Technology is an economical, environmentally friendly erosion armoring technology, designed to reduce construction and long-term maintenance costs. It combines engineered synthetic turf with a high-friction geomembrane that are locked into place with the high-strength HydroBinder infill. This technology offers the best of both worlds—the environmental and aesthetic benefits of vegetation, as well as the performance and maintenance benefits of hard armor. With superior erosion control, pointedly less turbidity, and significantly less maintenance, HydroTurf eliminates the headaches of traditional vegetative erosion control systems. It is also a more sustainable solution with a lower carbon footprint than other hard armor revetment
