Enhanced Metal Removal Where Industry Meets the Water
Most industrial facilities are under increasing pressure from regulators and local communities to protect harbors, bays, lakes, and streams by reducing the elevated concentrations of environmental pollutants commonly found within their facility’s stormwater runoff. Facilities are challenged due to intense operations with heavy equipment, multiple pollutant sources, non-porous paved surfaces and buildings, storage areas, and aging drainage and stormwater management technologies. To help solve this challenge, US Navy engineers spent 10 years and tested dozens of optional media options to develop FocalPointEMR, an LID/BMP hybrid system that decreases the concentration of toxic contaminants to meet NPDES permit requirements. In addition, the small footprint and rapid processing times of FocalPointEMR is beneficial for industrial sites where usable space is at a premium.
