BaySaver Technologies, the manufacturer of the BaySaver Stormwater Treatment System, is now New Jersey Corporation for Advanced Technology (NJCAT) verified, according to a recent company press release.
The verification shows that the BaySaver Stormwater Treatment System meets all federally mandated regulations set by Phase I and II of the Clean Water Act Stormwater Program, where municipalities are required to remove pollutants such as trash, oils and sediments in addition to providing the best value per treated CFS in the industry.
"The (NJCAT) is a private/public partnership that pools the best talents and diverse resources of business and industry, entrepreneurs, university research centers, utilities and government to promote the development and commercialization of exciting, new energy and environmental technologies," said BaySaver president Tom Pank.
Operations director Austin Meyermann added, "Programs such as this give confidence to the market that the BaySaver Separation System can meet strict performance criteria. We are very pleased to receive third-party verification by NJCAT. This step was an important precursor to NJDEP certification, which will be issued by the end of the month."
The BaySaver separation system makes meeting stormwater treatment regulations convenient and cost effective. It's engineered to strict stormwater standards—yet, its design keeps it highly affordable, and easy to spec, install and maintain. The systems are customizable to project site conditions, great for use in municipal retrofit situations, and allow engineers to avoid losing the valuable acreage necessary to support other types of BMPs.
Driven by gravity, stormwater flow enters a primary manhole for initial separation. The flow is then treated a second time in an off-line storage manhole, where oils, fine suspended solids, and floatables are collected. Since the water flow is regulated into the secondary manhole, re-suspension risk is minimal during higher flows. In addition, inspectors and maintenance contractors can gain unobstructed access to the bottom of the manholes—resulting in more efficient maintenance and lower costs.
