TARGET USERS: Government
KEY CONSIDERATIONS: Storm X nets must be manually cleaned of debris on a regular basis.

Plastic waste and other debris that is discarded in urban centers can flow unimpeded into waterways with storm water runoff, making its way into rivers and other waterways.
StormX is engineered to capture gross pollutants and handle powerful stormwater runoff at most urban hot spots. Commercial grade, reusable nets provide full capture of gross pollutants as small as 5 mm, including organic materials (such as leaves) that could reduce the levels of phosphorous and nitrogen in our water. This economical solution to litter and debris in stormwater runoff is highly effective for “first flush.” To prevent flooding, built-in overflows allow heavy runoff to flow unimpeded.
StormX is the ideal end-of-pipe solution for capturing floatables in combined sewer overflow applications. Additionally, StormX has a proven track record of success with zero failures for more than 15 years.
Alternative solutions seek to either prevent plastic waste from entering stormwater drains, or seek to capture plastic waste downstream in rivers and other waterways. The point of intervention differentiates the various stormwater solutions.
