Storm Water Management
Storm Water Catch Basin and Conveyance Cleaning
is the primary mechanism for maintaining any storm water conveyance system in good working order. Debris from carelessly discarded litter, dirt, snow and ice control materials, as well as hydrocarbons and heavy metals from vehicle operation enter catch basins as a result of storm water flows.
are designed to collect this debris and prevent it from entering the piping system and watershed. Regular cleaning is needed to reduce the chances of plugged pipes causing overflowing catch basins and associated flooding which can damage public and private property, as well as improving the water quality of our lakes, rivers and streams.
Storm Water Catch Basin Filters
The filtering of storm water on your site, before it enters a Municipality's storm water conveyance system, is the most effective means of limiting the liability associated with polluted runoff. Existing facilities already having a system of catch basins and underground conveyance pipes can have a series of filters installed in the catch basins for the collection of solids such a dirt and floatable debris. An absorbent media, which is an integral part of the filter, collects oils and heavy metals, the pollutants most associated with parking area operations. The adsorbent media collects up to 5 times its weight in pollutants.
Video Surveillance of Underground Storm Water and Sanitary Sewer Pipes
is used to determine the condition of infra-structure, locate legal and illegal connections, as well as leaks which may be contributing to system overburden. Tri States Video Surveillance can assist organizations in locating broken pipe as well as development of short and long term plans for underground conveyance system repair and replacement.
