If you plan to trap storm water for use, proper systems for stormwater management, including stormwater drainage and stormwater treatment. First of all, you need to have effective stormwater filters to get rid of stormwater pollution. It is important to note that there are several different kinds of pollution. Point pollution comes from a specific origin, or point, while non point source pollution refers to multi source water contamination that does not originate from a single, specific source. It can be a cumulative effect of small amounts of contaminants gathered from a large area. It is also important to distinguish between organic and non organic pollution. Organic water pollutants include detergents, food processing waste such as fats and grease, petroleum hydrocarbons, industrial solvents, vegetative debris, insecticides and herbicides, and chemicals from hygiene and personal care products.
When looking for filters for stormwater drainage and treatment, there are several different options to consider. First of all, it is important to note that storm drain filters are an efficient and cost effective alternative oil water separators. You might consider a catch basin insert or a curb inlet. Removing hydrocarbons and contaminants such as metals, sand, silt, litter and solid waste from stormwater runoff is an important function of curb inlets. Overall, stormwater drainage is essential.
