SCARBOROUGH, ME, Jan. 25, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) has endorsed the Stormwater Management StormFilter® as a stand-alone system for meeting the agency's water quality goal of 80% removal of total suspended solids (TSS). The filter removes challenging target pollutants through a patented passive filtration system that uses a variety of sustainable media.

"This endorsement will provide additional stormwater treatment alternatives for engineers, particularly for commercial developments and other applications where available space is limited," said Atlantic Zone manager Eric Whitney.

Field monitoring data for the system was reviewed and determined to be in accordance with the DNREC's Sediment and Stormwater Program.

It was demonstrated that the filter will consistently satisfy stormwater treatment goals as a stand-alone best management practices (BMP) designation. Stormwater360 worked with DNREC to develop solutions for the differing soil types in the Piedmont and Coastal Plains regions located north and south of the C&D Canal.

"Our focus is on designing premier systems to meet the most stringent stormwater treatment requirements," said chief technology officer James Lenhart, PE, "and the StormFilter has been recognized as a versatile BMP by agencies across the U.S."

Stormwater360 (www.stormwater360.com) is a progressive, innovative company with a mission to preserve and protect water resources worldwide. Stormwater360 helps customers achieve their water quality goals by providing treatment technologies that remove a variety of pollutants from stormwater runoff.
