Stormwater treatment is the process of removing pollutants and contaminants from rainwater runoff before it enters waterways, sewers and other drainage systems. This is essential to protect the environment and prevent water pollution, which can have severe impacts on human health and wildlife.
Rainwater runoff from commercial, industrial, and residential properties can contain a variety of materials and contaminants. Proper collection and treatment of stormwater runoff before discharge is crucial for property and business owners to comply with environmental regulations and avoid costly fines. Whether you need to filter out leaves, dust, oil, E. coli, or other pesky contaminants, Everfilt's filtration systems can provide the added security you're looking for.
During flooding conditions, flood water typically carries a wide variety of debris and possible contaminants such as oil, sewage, organic and in organic material. These conditions can cause storm drains, rivers, streams and many other lower lying areas to become damaged with excessive amounts of harmful materials. Water treatment solutions designed to treat specific flood related situations, can help significantly reduce waste and eliminate costly repairs and pollution in waterways.
Filtration SYSTEMS & MEDIAS:
During stormwater treatment, industrial filtration systems utilize sedimentation to allow larger particles and sediments to settle at the bottom. Then, coagulation clumps smaller particles together, allowing them to be easily removed. Water then passes through various filtration medias, such as activated carbon or sand filters, which can eliminate finer particles, chemicals, and organic matter.
Since multi-media filters are the combination of multiple media beds, they provide a graded filtration process, allowing for efficient filtration of contaminants. Activated carbon is notably effective in removing organic compounds and odors that may be present in stormwater runoff. It can also adsorb certain heavy metals and chlorine-based compounds, improving water quality and reducing environmental contamination hazards. A key advantage of activated carbon filters is their ability to be regenerated and reused.
