Both states give nod to MFS unit for basic stormwater treatment.

MORGAN HILL, CA, Nov. 27, 2006 -- Now municipalities and developers in New Jersey and Washington State can rely on CDS Technologies Storm Water Media Filtration System (MFS) when regulations call for higher removal of finer gradation of fine and suspended particles. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has certified MFS for removal efficiency of 80% of total suspended solids (TSS), while Washington State has issued a General Use Level Designation (GULD) for basic storm water treatment, the company announced Nov. 20.

Highest Approved Hydraulic Loading Rate per Square Foot of Media
The CDS Media Filtration System offers the highest hydraulic loading rate per square foot of media of any storm water filter approved by New Jersey or Washington State. It can treat flow rates from less than 1 cubic foot per second (<1 cfs) to more than 10 cubic feet per second (>10 cfs).

Economical and Efficient Manufactured Filtration System
The CDS Technologies Media Filtration System provides more fine media filtration per plan view square foot area than any storm water filter available today. This means that project effluent goals can be achieved in the smallest possible footprint with the least number of cartridges, lowering capital, installation, and maintenance costs.

Media Cartridges Target and Remove Specific Pollutants
The heart of the CDS Technologies Media Filtration System is its rechargeable, media-filled cartridges. They are designed to accept various types of media that can be easily replaced or exchanged at any time to target and remove specific pollutants, such as heavy metals, oils, and greases, as well as fine gradations of suspended solids.

Unique Single-Float Control Assembly for Pollutant Removal Efficiencies
Hydraulic operation of a single-float control assembly activates all media cartridges simultaneously to ensure even hydraulic loading through the entire bed of filter cartridges while matching treatment flow with inflow. This results in more efficient pollutant removal and higher removal efficiencies than siphon-activated systems.

CDS Technologies Inc. (www.cdstech.com) is dedicated to storm water, CSO/SSO, and wastewater treatment systems and technologies with thousands of installations in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, and the Asian Pacific Rim. With its corporate office located in Morgan Hill, California, CDS Technologies maintains sales offices throughout the United States as well as in Canada and Mexico.
