May. 17, 2013 New Innovative Stormwater BMP Video Released

Oyster Shells for Copper Removal

The Washington Stormwater Center is pleased to announce the second in our series of Innovative BMP Videos.  The video, "Oyster Shells for Copper Removal", was produced in conjunction with the Port of Seattle, a leader in Industrial Stormwater Management. 

In 2005, staff at the Port of Seattle invented an inexpensive, innovative and effective treatment method to remove copper from their stormwater runoff.  Watch this new video to see how they did it, and learn how you can too!

The video is now available on the Stormwater Channel on the WSC website, and also on the WSC YouTube Channel.
