  • Product Description

    The Stormwater Management StormFilter® (StormFilter®) is a passive, flow-through, stormwater filtration system. The system is comprised of one or more structures that house rechargeable, media-filled cartridges which trap particulates and adsorb materials such as dissolved metals, hydrocarbons, and nutrients in polluted runoff. The StormFilter® enables Engineers to meet the strictest requirements in North America. They can be designed to remove 80%-85% TSS based on particle sizes as small as 10-20 um.

    The StormFilter® system comes in a variety of configurations and sizes to meet any site requirement. A variety of filter media is available and can be customized for each site to remove very specific or a broad range of pollutants.

    SS Credit 6.1 – Stormwater Quantity Control, 1 Point

    Intent – Limit disruption of natural hydrology by reducing impervious cover, increasing on-site infiltration, reducing or eliminating pollution from stormwater runoff and eliminating contaminants.

    Potential contribution: CONTECH Pretreatment Systems

    • Extend the service life of infiltration and detention system
    • Minimize maintenance
    • Control flow into infiltration systems

    SS Credit 6.2 – Stormwater Quality Control, 1 Point

    Intent – Limit disruption and pollution of natural water flows by managing stormwater runoff.

    Potential contribution: Stormwater Treatment Products

    • Many systems can be designed to achieve 80% removal of total suspended solids (TSS) load
    • Choose the product that best meets your water quality objectives and local regulations

    WE Credit 3 – Water Efficiency, 2-4 Points

    Intent – Further increase water efficiency within buildings to reduce the burden on municipal water supply and wastewater systems. Reduce by 30% (2 points), reduce by 35% (3 points) or reduce by 40% (4 points).

    Potential contribution: CONTECH Stormwater Treatment Systems

    • Pretreat rainwater to remove pollutants with treatment systems

    WE Credit 3 – Water Efficiency, 2-4 Points

    Intent – Further increase water efficiency within buildings to reduce the burden on municipal water supply and wastewater systems. Reduce by 30% (2 points), reduce by 35% (3 points) or reduce by 40% (4 points).

    Potential contribution: CONTECH Stormwater Treatment and Detention Systems

    • Reuse harvested rainwater for grey water applications such as toilet flushing

    MR Credit 4 – Recycled Content, 1-2 Points

    Intent – Increase the demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials. The sum of post-consumer recycled content plus one-half of the pre-consumer content constitutes at least 10% (1 point) or 20% (2 points), based on cost, of the total value of the materials in the project.

    Potential Contributions: CONTECH Concrete Structures

    • Many CONTECH vendors use recycled materials in their concrete mixes
    • Contact your local CONTECH representative for project specific information.

    MR Credit 5.1 – Regional Materials, 1-2 Points

    Intent – Increase demand for building materials and products that are extracted and manufactured locally to a job site in hopes to reduce the environmental impact that would result from transporting these goods. Products manufactured, extracted and recycled within 500 miles of the project site for a minimum of 10% (1 point) or 20% (2 points), based on cost of the total materials value.

    Potential Contribution: All CONTECH Products

    • 40 manufacturing facilities nationwide Contact your local representative to find out if your project location falls within our reach
