Best Management Products, Inc.
Since 1999, more than 85,000 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 TrashScreen 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 everyday traffic from cars, trucks and emergency vehicles.
RD SolDrain: Longer pavement design life
Even if a roadway is saturated only 10% of the time, its service life may be reduced by half.
Water on pavements causes damage and costs a fortune to repair. Ask any engineer: adequate drainage of both surface and subgrade is vital to a pavement’s long-term performance.
RD SolDrain (previously RoaDrain) is the engineered solution to drain roadways, parking lots, airports, railway facilities, embankments and dikes in a cost-effective design. Easy to install, it greatly extends service life and reduces maintenance costs.
This high-strength HDPE geocomposite comprises a triplanar geonet core, heat-bonded on both sides with geotextile filters for unobstructed linear flow. RD SolDrain’s compressive strength of 50,000 psf is combined with 10 times the permeability of drainage stones.

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 degrees, 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.

Soil Retention Products
VERDURA is a fully plantable retaining wall system that provides the strength and function of a standard retaining wall with the added ability to sustain live plants. VERDURA blocks are made of low-moisture absorbing concrete that will not deteriorate over time. Because of the high shear strength from the lip of the block, VERDURA allows for soil compaction directly behind the blocks, facilitating the use of heavy construction equipment within close proximity to the wall face. VERDURA applications include high and critical walls, tiered walls, channel walls, detention basin walls, screen walls, sound walls, and more. Soil Retention has been installing VERDURA retaining walls up to 50’ height single-tier and up to 80’ height multi-tier throughout California for more than 30 years without a failure. And VERDURA is Caltrans approved up to 40’. Soil Retention is a general engineering contractor licensed in CA, AZ and NV.

Sustainable Paving Systems
Grasscrete offers a pervious concrete system that maintains a solid, drivable surface. Grasscrete provides structural integrity adequate for supporting the weight of a 114,000-pound fire apparatus or a 103,000-pound fully loaded vacuum maintenance truck. Overflow and industrial parking lots where surface drainage can be beneficial as well as roadway shoulders and embankments—capable of draining at rates of up to 480 inches per hour with 100% retention of water with the right design—are all opportunities to consider Grasscrete. Grasscrete is the ideal solution for solving stormwater issues by offering year-round access for applications requiring real structural paving surfaces without compromising the aesthetics of the exterior landscaping and/or the percolation of stormwater and irrigation runoff back into the ground.

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.

It is currently used across North and Central America.
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 MAS 801
Several deep tunnels are designed with the goal of preventing stormwater from overflowing and entering into nearby waterways. Recent installations consist of stations designed at a depth of 220-feet. The tunnels store a mixture until rain subsides and sewer system capacity is available. Stormwater is then pumped back into the sewer system and treated before being released into the local river. Xylem engineers have provided CFD studies ensuring there are no unexpected hydraulic disturbances impacting operation. Meeting FM certification, complying with the Class 1, Division 1 environment has also been a requirement, coupled with offering increased monitoring intelligence such as the Flygt MAS801 offering operations the tools needed to make informed decisions.
