Stormwater pollution to be reduced with new products from joint venture

A new joint venture between Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. and BaySaver Technologies, Inc. has been recently announced.

HILLIARD, OHIO, July 18, 2013 -- A new joint venture between Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. (ADS) and BaySaver Technologies, Inc. (Mount Airy, MD) was recently announced by ADS Chairman and CEO Joe Chlapaty and BaySaver President Tom Pank. In 2008, the companies announced an exclusive marketing agreement for ADS to sell the Bay Separator™ and BayFilter™ units, which separate and filter pollution from stormwater runoff.

Called BaySaver LLC, the new company will continue to be based in Mount Airy, Md., and will focus on stormwater filtration and separation technologies. Manufacturing operations will be expanded nationwide to provide local service and supply. Currently, ADS has 56 domestic and international manufacturing plants and 28 distribution centers. ADS products include N-12® corrugated high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe, SaniTite® HP pipe and fittings plus other storm water system components such as StormTech® storm water chambers, InsertaTee® fittings, and various geotextiles. Founded in 1966, ADS is the world's largest producer of corrugated plastic pipe.

"Evolving requirements imposed on municipal stormwater systems by the EPA have created the need for a more complete stormwater treatment methodology," explained Ron Vitarelli, Vice President of Storm and Sanitary Markets for ADS. "As a solutions-based manufacturer, we are asked to provide a 'treatment train' approach to owners and specifiers. The BaySaver product line rounds out the ADS stormwater product offering."
