San Diego, CA - The Modular Wetland System (MWS) - Linear Stormwater Biofiltration System has been approved for Basic (CULD) and Enhanced (PULD) Treatment. These designations allow for use of the Modular Wetland to be installed and operated in the State of Washington. This system has been verified and approved for removal of TSS and dissolved metals at a loading rate of 1 gpm/sq ft (100 in/hr).
Washington State DOE Findings of Fact:
Capability to remove 99% of TSS
Capability to remove 93% of dissolved Copper
Capability to remove 80.5% of dissolved Zinc
This was accomplished through the Technology Assessment Protocol - Ecology (TAPE) certification process for emerging stormwater treatment technologies. By holding a TAPE Certification, Modular Wetlands, has met applicable design criteria and performance goals for new development and redevelopment within the State of Washington. Modular Wetlands is the only biofilter to utilize horizontal flow to treat various pollutants.
