Meeting industrial stormwater pollution benchmarks in CA, WA

• StormwateRx helps industries reach environmental benchmark goals before the start of the rainy season and the kick-off of state-mandated stormwater sampling

PORTLAND, OR, Aug. 19, 2010 -- For all industrial sites in the states of California and Washington, October 1st signifies the beginning of the rainy season and the kickoff for state mandated stormwater sampling. According to Cal Noling, President and CEO of StormwateRx LLC, a provider of industrial stormwater treatment and filtration systems, facilities still have enough time to install a stormwater filtration system before the first fall storms roll in. The stormwater permitting processes for industrial sites in both California and Washington are designed to keep pollutants in stormwater runoff from entering local waterways. In order to obtain permits, industrial sites must take samples of stormwater discharges from their facilities beginning with the first fall storm event after October 1st that generates enough precipitation for stormwater to runoff their sites.

"Installing a stormwater treatment system at a working industrial site requires awareness of the unique needs of that particular industry, an understanding of the specific environmental concerns of the local area and the expertise to retrofit a system to an existing industrial site," said Noling, "At StormwateRx we offer a range of systems that can be customized to meet the needs of different industries and retrofit to nearly any industrial site, enabling us to have a complete stormwater treatment system up and running in as little as six weeks -- just in time to comply with state stormwater benchmarks."

StormwateRx has decades of collective experience developing and installing stormwater treatment systems for a wide range of industries, providing a deep understanding of the unique environmental concerns, Best Management Practices (BMPs) and ideal product configurations to help industrial sites meet even the strictest environmental benchmarks to protect local waterways from pollutants in stormwater runoff.

StormwateRx stormwater treatment BMPs include industry-optimized configurations of the Clara® settling system to remove settleable oil and grit; the Aquip® passive, adsorptive stormwater filtration system for the reduction of pollutants such as oils, suspended solids, heavy metals (including dissolved metals), organics and nutrients and the Purus™ stormwater polishing system for enhanced pollutant removal of dissolved metals to the parts per billion range, toxic organics, water turbidity to single-digit NTU standards and elimination of pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli and fecal coliform.
