By the EPA
STORMTREAT SYSTEMS was selected by EPA Region 1 for the 1999 Environmental Technology Innovator Award. The award "represents New England's most innovative technologies". The selection process was administered by EPA's Regional Science Council which evaluated the technology based upon: 1) the ability of the technology to address environmental problems, 2) the ability of the claims to be verified, 3) field trials and 4) innovativeness.
STORMTREAT SYSTEM Is Verified
The STORMTREAT SYSTEM is the first stormwater treatment technology to be verified by the Massachusetts Strategic Environmental Partnership (STEP). The STEP Program is a service provided by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to help develop new environmental technologies and to verify their effectiveness. An excerpt from the executive summary of this assessment reads as follows:
"It is the conclusion of this assessment that the (STORMTREAT) system, when sized according to recommended criteria, with proper operation and maintenance, can provide levels of treatment required under Standards 4 and 6, as specified by the Massachusetts DEP Stormwater Management Handbook. Under special circumstances, the system may provide as much as 98% removal of TSS when sized according to design criteria. The system, when configured for recharge can meet Standard 3 and is also likely to meet Standard 5, for land uses with higher potential pollutant loads, when sized according to design criteria."
The Massachusetts STEP is a member of the Six State Partnership for Environmental Technology which includes California, Pennsylvania, Illinois, New Jersey, and New York. Reciprocal certifications in these states may be available.
