Unique Ways to Keep Waterways Clean


 
Construction,Environment,Real Estate
Storms are a part of seasonal changes and can sometimes be pretty devastating, but more often than not contending with storms is only part of the problem, tackling storm water, which is an offshoot of snow melt or rain precipitation, is seemingly a bigger problem. Normally, storm water flows into the many waterways: streams, lakes, rivers and ponds; this means during its flow, storm water gathers debris, sand, sediment from land surfaces and carries all this into gutters, storm drains, from where it flows on to the streams and lakes. No wonder then that we require storm water control.

So long as rainwater and melted snow is absorbed into the ground, there's no issue, but when it flows over roads and impervious land surfaces, the runoff volume is disturbing as it runs into drains and sewer systems, causing flooding and sometimes infrastructural damage. Erosion on bank streams contaminates water, destroys habitat and increases turbidity. To help keep the drains and waterways clean and free from debris and pollutants, inlet filters are used. These are specially designed storm water filters that help keep waterways and drainage systems free from sediment and debris—in short they help in storm water management.

Soil erosion is also a matter of great environmental concern and is an offshoot of urbanization. When land is dug up to construct buildings, sediments surface and these very often find their way into drains, storm sewers, grates and inlets, and waterways get contaminated. Left untended, these could cause nasty drainage overflows and that's why they need to be caught even before they enter the drains. Here again, inlet filters come into the picture.

Curb inlet filters deserve special mention as they are water permeable and can be secured to any open curb inlet. Built from robust synthetic or natural material, they are highly effective at capturing and removing pollutants from storm water runoff. Silt sifter bags are fitted on either ends of the filters and these help trap the debris, silt and sediment, preventing overflow and ponding, even in heavy storm situations. Many filters can be joined together to cover long lengths of curb opening storm drains. Two polypropylene straps in the form of handles help in placing and removing the filters when needed. Inexpensive to maintain, these filters help prevent clogging and reduce pollution; best of all they keep the waterways clean and pollution free.

When combined with storm water and sediment control products, curb inlet filters can handle even the thick sediment-laden storm water from sewer drains, thereby providing superior inlet protection. The curb bag and curb sack, patented and designed for use in gutter and on curb inlets handle the most stubborn sediment-laden storm water by trapping the sediments very effectively well before they enter the inlet. As a result the solid waste settles at the bottom and the clear water passes into the drains. Undoubtedly, inlet filters appear to be a good way of keeping waterways clean.
