Regulations and ordinances pertaining to stormwater management continue
to evolve. These changes reflect growing concerns to balance the needs
of area development with environmental protection. Regulations that govern
management are influenced by local area attributes and constraints, such
as geology, drainage infrastructure and environmental concerns. Recognition
local attributes and constraints in the stormwater design process helps
promote conscientious development with sound environmental planning.
StormTech detention systems are designed and modeled using the same techniques and software as surface ponds. So the engineer can design for both predevelopment flow rates and volumes just like surface ponds.
There is no need to concentrate or relocate infiltration areas from the predevelopment to post development locations because the development needs conflict with the surface infiltration pond. When used for infiltration, our chamber systems offer the flexibility to be configured in multiple, yet cost effective arrangements on a site to best mimic predevelopment infiltration conditions.
StormTech system can be easily configured in conjunction with other storm water quality BMPs. Proprietary BMPs can be located upstream for oil and large grit removal. Rain gardens can be located above StormTech systems and swales are commonly positioned downstream of chamber systems.
The StormTech Isolator Row was developed to capture sediments before they reach the subsurface system. Performance of the Isolator Row has been quantified first by full scale laboratory testing, then by field testing in accordance with the TARP Tier II protocol.
