SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AbTech Industries, Inc., an environmental technologies company, and United Stormwater, Inc., a full service stormwater management firm, recently collaborated to bring two best-in-class technologies together, providing a unique solution for evolving stormwater challenges in southern California.
A municipality in Los Angeles County, California has retrofitted existing infrastructure using United Stormwater's Wing-Gate™ Screens, auto-retractable curb inlet screen covers, and AbTech's Ultra-Urban® Filters, catch basin inserts, in an effort to prevent stormwater contamination that flows into Legg Lake, one of Los Angeles County's largest and most popular recreation areas.
United Stormwater's Wing-Gate Screens act as the first line of defense, preventing larger, floatable contaminants from entering the storm drain. AbTech's Ultra-Urban Filter, using Smart Sponge® HM – a new, proprietary media – removes oils & grease, phosphorus and heavy metals while also filtering sediment and other nutrients from stormwater that enters the storm drain.
This is the first time that United Stormwater and AbTech have collaborated on a large-scale application, demonstrating how to provide a cost-effective solution to address a complex stormwater challenge while using best-in-class technology.
AbTech and United Stormwater will be showcasing how their technologies work together at StormCon Surface Water Quality Conference and Expo on August 27 – 31 at booths 314, 316, and 318.
