Aug. 16, 2011 Treatment Technologies for Industrial Stormwater

Data report and literature review

The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) Toxics Cleanup Program recently commissioned a report – Literature Review of Existing Treatment Technologies for Industrial Stormwater. The report is part of the endeavor by Ecology and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to clean up contaminated sediment and control sources of recontamination in the Lower Duwamish Waterway (the 5.5-mile portion of the Lower Duwamish River which flows into Elliott Bay, Seattle, WA).

Although the report is a data and literature review of technologies to treat industrial or municipal stormwater to prevent recontamination of sediment in the Lower Duwamish Waterway, this comprehensive report is a useful resource for any stormwater manager that is researching treatment technologies – especially for industrial settings.

The report includes:
  • Vendor information
  • Treatment performance
  • System design
  • Installation and O&M costs
  • Appropriate applications
  • Logistical issues for performance monitoring

Herrera Environmental Consultants prepared the report under contract to Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC).
