Description

Due to the developments space restrictions, limited area was available to implement large-scale water quality treatment measures such as a bio-retention basin. As a result, the engineers at Milanovic Neale Consulting Engineers decided to propose an underground propriety treatment system. After comparing a number of market options, the engineers concluded that the StormFilter with PhosphoSorb media and EnviroPod pre-treatment represented the best full lifecycle solution for the site.
A total of 3 690mm StormFilter cartridges were housed in a pre-cast concrete manhole supplied by stormwater360, this tank was fitted with all the necessary components to house the StormFilter and had been built to meet site-specific drainage configuration.

Maintenance

The typical maintenance frequency for an upstream EnviroPod pit basket is every 4 months, which includes the removal and disposal of suspended solids trapped in the filter bag. This effective pre-treatment device contributes to the longevity of the downstream filtration systems. The StormFilter cartridges located on this site are recommended to be serviced every 12 months based on typical pollutant load concentrations generated on site. Essentially, our qualified Confined Space maintenance team will bring replacement filter cartridges to site, simply remove sediment accumulation from the treatment chamber using an inductor truck and replace filters in a cost-effective and time operative manner.
