BaySeparator: Stormwater Treatment

The problem

Storm water is one of the main causes of pollution in cities. All the water runoff that is produced accumulates waste and pollutants throughout the city and is finally poured into rivers and water bodies, affecting environments and natural resources that people depend on.

The technology

The BaySeparator is a water treatment system that treats runoff throughout entire storms, no matter their intensity and duration.

In the following link it is explained how it works with different storm intensities:

Deployment

BaySaver Techonogies Inc. is a company that designs and manufactures stormwater treatment products. They created the BaySeparator in order to improve older systems that treated only the first flush of runoff. The idea was to create a new technology able to treat the stormwater throughout the entire storm.
