PORTLAND, OR, July 28, 2011 -- The Aquip® Enhanced Stormwater Filtration System from StormwateRx has been approved by the Washington Department of Ecology with a Conditional Use Level Designation (CULD) for Basic, Enhanced and Phosphorus treatment. With this designation, Aquip is approved for use on new and redevelopment projects in Washington.

"We are extremely pleased to have achieved CULD approval from the State of Washington," said Calvin Noling, president and CEO of StormwateRx, LLC. "This provides a powerful, independent verification of our Aquip system and the high standards of quality and effectiveness of the StormwateRx BMPs in keeping industrial sites in compliance with environmental benchmarks."

The State of Washington Department of Ecology evaluates stormwater treatment technologies using its Technology Assessment Protocol -- Ecology (TAPE). The CULD approval was granted based upon review by a board of external reviewers consisting of stormwater experts from across the United States. Under this protocol for Washington, Aquip is the first and only industrial stormwater treatment system to achieve CULD approval for the treatment of solids, metals and nutrients in stormwater.

According to the Department of Ecology, several other states, counties and cities also use TAPE certification to determine whether a technology can be installed within their jurisdiction, including Sacramento, CA; Denver, CO, St. Louis, MO, the State of New Hampshire, Portland, OR, the Oregon Department of Transportation and the State of Rhode Island.
