PORTLAND, OR, July 20, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Two leaders of the stormwater industry, Stormwater Management Inc. and Vortechnics Inc., announced that they have united as Stormwater360™.

With the launch of Stormwater360, the firms continue the integration of their operations.

"We are pleased to introduce Stormwater360," said company president and CEO David Miley. "We chose the name because it communicates our passion about providing innovative and cutting-edge engineered solutions that meet every stormwater challenge."

With an unparalleled product line and unmatched customer support team under one umbrella, Stormwater360 has the treatment option to meet the water quality goals of its customers.
