BORGERT PRODUCTS In 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
PLASTIC SOLUTIONS INC. Plastic Solutions Inc. was founded in 1997 with the vision to supply structural plastic trash racks to the stormwater management industry. Since then, a significant amount of research and development has gone into product testing—including load testing, UV resistance, flammability, resin additives, and water flow restriction requirements—all with excellent results. Today, Plastic Solutions supplies high-quality, industry-leading trash racks, and also sells HDPE pipe, HDPE fittings, ChamberMaxx pipe, PVC pipe, plastic catch and drain basins, and plastic sheet goods. The company has certified shop and field welders to ensure all requirements are
ERNST SEEDS Ernst Conservation Seeds grows, processes, and sells over 400 species of native and naturalized seeds and live plant materials for restoration, beautification, reclamation, and conservation. The company identifies, collects, and propagates new species and ecotypes that meet its clients’ needs, from eastern Canada to the southeastern
SOLINST CANADA LTD. The Solinst Model 3002 Rainlogger Edge is designed to count the tips of a connected tipping-bucket rain gauge, and output the total amount of rainfall per time period. The Rainlogger Edge has memory for 60,000 time-stamped readings, and a battery that lasts up to 10 years. It features an ABS housing that provides ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection when recording in the field. The Rainlogger Edge is excellent for measuring local precipitation, larger scale remote monitoring of watersheds, and localized stormwater event
PINE HALL BRICK CO. St. John’s Home in Rochester, NY, is a long-term community for the elderly. To avoid runoff, the home used StormPave permeable clay pavers in the newly constructed courtyard. Stormwater can remain under the pavers as it slowly dissipates back into the soil. Water can also be used to irrigate the rain gardens in and around the
BLOCKSOM & CO. Inlet Filter is a value-priced BMP for stormwater inlet protection during the construction phase. The versatile coir-fiber mat attaches easily to hundreds of grate styles making installation quick and easy. Customers can sweep the sides and top surface to maintain, even through standing water. Pads or rolls can be cut to size with a knife or scissors onsite for best fit and to allow overflow where regulations
STORMCHAMBER HydroLogic Solutions, manufacturer of StormChambers, in conjunction with the Quail and Upland Wildlife Federation, has obtained a grant from the Virginia DOT to provide Boy Scouts with onsite learning experiences on stormwater management. The grant is associated with the expansion of the I-95 express lanes in Northern Virginia. The Boy Scouts will learn about stormwater effects on the Chesapeake Bay with boat tours by Chesapeake Watermen. 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
HOBAS PIPE USA Centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced, polymer mortar HOBAS pipe is suitable for new construction and rehab of critical installations including storm and sanitary sewers, potable water, and corrosive environments. HOBAS manufactures pressure and gravity pipe in diameters ranging from 18 to 126 inches with leak-free push-together joints that speed installation and reduce costs. It is ideal for a variety of installation methods including sliplining and other trenchless methods, open cut and
IN-SITU INC. The SMARTROLL Handheld systems combine industry-leading water quality sensors with revolutionary smartphone mobility, eliminating the need for bulky, expensive, handheld meters. Simply connect the SMARTROLL Multiparameter or RDO Probe to an iOS Battery Pack or Android Power Pack, launch the mobile app, and start reading results: no warm-up time or tedious setup. The mobile app guides the user through spot checks, calibrations, and data management. Real-time results can be e-mailed from the field, logged to a smartphone, or exported on the
GREYLINE INSTRUMENTS INC. With Greyline Instruments’ products, customers can monitor flow through open channels, partially full sewer pipes, and surcharged pipes without a flume or weir. The new MantaRay Portable Area-Velocity flowmeter is designed for monitoring stormwater, sewage, industrial effluent, irrigation water, and natural
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
