With stormwater pollutant removal requirements increasing nationwide, the demand for robust filtration has also increased. Designing and specifying a properly functioning filter extends beyond specifying the correct product (media or membrane filter) and sizing correctly (flow or volume based). These additional considerations are classified as design red flags. Red flags include elements that can be overlooked and can significantly impact the effectiveness and longevity of a stormwater filtration system.
When designing you may encounter any of these or other challenges. Contech’s team of stormwater design engineers have successfully engineered thousands of filter systems and can provide design assistance for your specific project needs.
