How Does Convergent
Assist Civil Engineers?
Convergent Water Technologies’ VAR Network has been partnering with civil engineering, architectural and land development companies either directly or in collaboration with our value added reseller network since 2002. We are at the forefront of stormwater innovation and bring regulatory expertise, product knowledge and system solutions to anyone looking for help. Today, we partner with civil engineering and architectural firms in selecting and applying innovative technology and solutions as it relates to stormwater quality and quantity, green infrastructure, climate resiliency, low impact development, and stormwater automation. Contact us for a no cost review of your project.
How We Bring
Innovation To The Market
What happens when an innovator at a school/garage/think tank comes up with an innovative idea for stormwater management, but they have no idea how to bring it to market. They contact Convergent, because we can…
Enhanced Metal Removal
Where Industry Meets the Water
The FocalPointEMR system is made of seven main components, working in succession to filter out TSS, fine particles, nutrients, oil, grease and metals. Runoff initially filters through a Gabion Barrier which prevents larger trash and debris from entering the system. Runoff then enters the Biofiltration System, where the stormwater percolates down through a mulch layer, engineered media and bridging stone before it enters the modular box underdrain. Once the modular box underdrain is full, runoff flows into the secondary treatment system. Here it percolates down through activated carbon char, which absorbs heavy metals, fluorides, iron and organic molecules. Then, through FS-50, an iron enhanced activated alumina on top of the underdrain that reduces dissolved contaminants.
“The biggest benefit to me, as a professional engineer, is the fact that these systems have a long and successful history. Each component of the FocalPoint system have years of testing and successful implementation behind it. This gives me peace of mind that my project will be successful for the long term. I want to be sure that the solution that I recommend to my clients and utilize in my designs are going to be right solution for the project and that includes lasting for a long time. FocalPoint gives me that peace of mind.”
“We selected the [Element1] media for our Bagby project that includes urban raingardens for several reasons. The predominant reason is due to the limited project right-of-way we had to select a biofiltration media that provides a high acceptance of infiltration in a limited area. Additionally the product is basically turnkey through design, construction and maintenance provided a fluid design process through the design and approval process. Finally I have a level of confidence working with Construction Eco Services that they not only have their product in consideration but think about what’s best for the project and our environment.”
“FocalPoint is one of the few products on the market that meets Harris County criteria for high infiltration rate media. Convergent Water Technologies guarantees the engineered media for one year and provides maintenance checks for one year. These are valuable services that alleviate some of the anxiety clients experience when piloting a new product.”
