A Stormceptor is a stormwater quality treatment system that is designed to protect waterways from hazardous material spills and stormwater pollution, including suspended sediment, free oils, floatables and other pollutants that attach to particles.
Stormwater enters the Stormceptor through the inlet pipe(s) or inlet grate. An insert slows the water down and directs it to a lower chamber. The non-turbulent chamber allows free oils and debris to rise and sediment to settle. Free oils and other floatables remain trapped and sediment settles for later removal. Treated stormwater then exits the unit via the outlet pipe.
Anything entering a storm drain or catch basin usually runs untreated into the nearest stream, river or lake. That includes soils, road wear, pesticides, heavy metals, chemicals, oil, gas and other contaminants. Stormwater runoff is the most common cause of water pollution.
The M.O.E requires regular inspection and record keeping as part of the Certificate of Approval issued to your unit. If a Stormceptor unit is not inspected, you won't know when it needs to be serviced. If it isn't serviced, it may eventually cease to perform the environmental function for which it was selected, and you risk a discharge and the subsequent liabilities involved.
