The StormTreat Systems team has developed a new linear system!
About the New Linear System
We are now providing a linear alternative to our traditional circular treatment configuration. The new design fits easily into linear buffer areas commonly found in parking lots and along the edges of roadways. It can also be constructed in a tiered arrangement to provide a cascading effect down a sloped hillside. It is modular and therefore allows for multiple units to be configured in tandem or adjacent to one another.
Our new linear treatment option maintains the same integrated process that includes a pre-treatment settling/skimmer tank followed by a linear bioretention treatment cell, providing physical filtration and biological metabolization of pollutants. We also preserved the same dimensions and treatment processes to replicate our demonstrated treatment performance that includes high removal rates for total suspended solids (TSS), pathogens, nutrients, metals, and hydrocarbons.
The new linear treatment features a solar powered water pump that distributes and recycles the stored stormwater to the bioretention cell. Moreover, we added a subsurface detention mechanism that increases the capacity of the system and provides an irrigation source during dry periods between rain events.
Please contact us directly for details. We are always happy to review a site plan and provide assistance with layouts and configurations.
About the System
StormTreat Systems (STS) is a proprietary stormwater runoff treatment technology offering high quality pollutant removal performance through the use of physical techniques (sedimentation, filtration) chemical processes (adsorption) and biological mechanisms (bioaccumulation, nitrification and denitrification).
It is comprised of a multistage system including a series of sediment trapping chambers, a gravel filter and integrated bioretention system. It is designed and sized to capture and treat the design storm volume of stormwater runoff events (which carry 90% of pollutants).
The unique combination of passive physical and active natural water treatment employed in this system provides for comprehensive removal of stormwater pollutants. Not only are suspended solids, petroleum hydrocarbons, metals, and nutrients stripped from the influent, but also bacterial contaminants, which pose a direct risk to human health, are effectively removed. The inclusion of the constructed wetland provides the surrounding area with additional vegetation thereby adding to habitat diversity.
State of the Art Pollutant Removal
STS provides a comprehensive solution to address a broad range of pollutants identified in TMDL studies. Our technology provides 93% removal of TSS, 88% of pathogens (enterococci), and 50% removal for total phosphorus. Visit our Pollutant Removal Data page for details.
Space Saving - LID Design
StormTreat Systems compact design and diverse configuration options significantly reduces the need for land-intensive detention facilities making it an ideal LID technology.
By providing highly efficient treatment of the first flush, StormTreat Systems compares favorably with other stormwater BMPs on a "cost per-acre treated" basis.
Maintenance of STS is limited to annual plant maintenance and monitoring of sediment depth within the chambers. The sediment pumping schedule varies from site to site but is generally needed only every 2-3 years. Sediment removal procedures are similar to traditional catch basin clean-outs, using standard equipment and technique resulting in convenience and low cost.
