Best Management Products, Inc.
Since 1999, more than 80,000 BMP SNOUT hoods have been put in service to help communities comply with stormwater quality regulations. This system reduces trash, floatables, oil and sediment from stormwater discharges. It is also a high-performance pre-treatment option for water harvesting, stormwater retention and recharge systems.
BMP’s accessories such as the Bio-Skirt, the Stainless TrashScree and our new Turbo Plates add flexibility and extra cleaning power. The most popular option for the SNOUT is the Bio-Skirt, which increases hydrocarbon removals including emulsified oils and PAHs. The Stainless TrashScreen is an accessory that helps to meet Full Trash Capture requirements for Trash TMDLs.
Our Turbo Plates reduce turbulence and velocity in the structure and greatly increase sediment capture and retention. Design information, CAD drawings and pricing can be found at bmpinc.com or call 800-504-8008 for assistance. All products are proudly made in the USA.

Presto Geosystems’ GEOPAVE gravel porous pavers were utilized for parking and walkways with other environmental and sustainable products at a Wisconsin nature preserve, The Ridges Sanctuary, in their pursuit for USGBC LEED Platinum rating.
Protecting Lake Michigan’s watershed was a primary concern at this facility’s location adjacent to the lake’s western shores. The porous pavements were an important part of the overall plan to protect the waters against the negative effects of stormwater runoff on water quality. The GEOPAVE system, infilled with highly porous stone, allows water infiltration and acts as a natural, onsite stormwater retention system, storing stormwater in its aggregate base after rain events and allowing for natural percolation. GEOPAVE pavements are designed to accept every-day traffic from cars, trucks and emergency vehicles.

STORMSURGE ACCESS ASSEMBLY
During a major rain or tidal event, the water pressure can be powerful enough to force up and dislodge a manhole cover. This creates a hazard for both motorists and pedestrians. The STORMSURGE Access Assembly solves this problem by allowing water to flow. During a storm surge or backflow event, the cover can lift up to 16°, enabling water to flow out and relieve the pressure. The locking arm and hinge restrain the cover and allow it to properly seat itself after the event. Made in the USA, it is traffic rated and exceeds the 40,000-lb proof loading requirements of AASHTO-M-306.

Module 20 Series
The new StormTank Module 20 Series is the latest addition to StormTank’s portfolio of subsurface stormwater storage units. The Module 20 Series was designed to help project professionals achieve lower project costs and quicker turnaround, while still meeting site-specific requirements. It features a fully factored HS-20 load rating, making it an ideal solution for everyday load applications like under parking lots or athletic fields. Its larger, simplified design allows for quick assembly and requires fewer total units needed per project without sacrificing storage capacity compared to our existing Module 25 Series product.
For years, StormTank has employed a step-by-step process to complete stormwater projects on schedule, within budget, and to our customers’ expectations. Trust our tested and proven methodology to continually deliver the results you expect.
At TYPAR Geosynthetics, we create performance-based replacements for building staples like stone, sand and asphalt. Our products are lighter and easier to install than their mineral counterparts, reducing materials required, waste created and the need for heavy construction equipment. With product and research facilities in Nashville, Tenn., we’ve built upon 40 years of experience to extend our range of materials to provide protection, reinforcement, drainage, filtration and separation options to design and construction professionals.
From permeable driveway surfaces, tree root-friendly barriers that protect underground structures or a reinforcement wall system that holds back flood waters, TYPAR Geosynthetics can meet application requirements and extend the life of projects.
Manufactured nationwide by local UNI Manufacturers, Eco-Optiloc permeable interlocking concrete pavers infiltrate stormwater runoff onsite, saving money by combining parking and detention in one system. Reduces impacts on combined storm/sewer systems, mitigates runoff volumes and peak flows, and reduces heat-island effects. Eco-Optiloc is an EPA-recommended best-management practice, and qualifies for LEED and other green rating systems credits.
Eco-Optiloc features interlocking spacers and an “L” shape configuration that offers superior structural stability under traffic loading and withstands turning movements without surface degradation or raveling. Pavement infiltration is maintained by street sweeping/vacuuming and allows for seamless repair if underground access is required. Eco-Optiloc is suitable for use in any climate and is especially suited to vehicular applications.
Vectorworks Landmark software offers site design professionals the tools to identify stormwater issues while helping create site solutions. With the combination of the site model feature, landscape area and worksheets, users can generate accurate quantity calculations for stormwater impacting their site. The site model will create stormwater flow using automated flow arrows and elevation points as well as slope categories that can help pinpoint erosion problems before they happen. Additionally, the landscape area calculates the surface area of the actual terrain, allowing customized worksheets to produce accurate numbers and data. This information offers you the best choices for the site. Together, these tools create a powerful stormwater analysis and infiltration diagnosis, allowing your workflow to run accurately and smoothly.
Flygt Submersible Pumps—A Proven Solution for Stormwater Applications
Xylem’s Flygt has pioneered the installation of submersible pumps in large-capacity circular wet wells primarily designed to help reduce environmental impacts, which have resulted from Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs). Xylem-Flygt CP3351’s (800-hp, 4160-volt) 15-mgd adjustable speed pumps were installed in a 215-foot deep, 60-mgd capacity pumping system for the City of Columbus, Ohio. The system consists of multiple pumps handling flows to dewater the tunnel within two days of a large-flow event. The city, which was facing a CSO problem, combined sound engineering with state-of-the-art equipment to deliver solutions addressing issues for decades to come.
