Sustainability Through Innovation in the Industry: Part Two

When:  Sep 20, 2023 from 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM (MT)

Back by popular demand, this online education series is part of IECA's mission to help grow the industry by promoting innovative research, products and technology that meet industry needs through more sustainable approaches. Join us as we explore the hydrologic changes that take place when an 80-acre sub-basin of a 1.6 sq. mi. rural watershed is developed with conventional detention vs automated control and effective continuous TSS measurements. In part two of the series, we will dive into a low salt design future and using recycled materials to prevent stormwater pollution.

  • Designing a Low Salt Future
  • Heavy salt use of our winter pavements has sterilized our soils and has challenged us to establish roadside vegetation. Salt is a forever water pollutant and a threat to the life of our infrastructure. To get to the core of the salt problem, Bolton & Menk has developed infrastructure design considerations for better winter performance of our "saltable" surfaces. By using these relatively simple strategies, we can improve winter performance, increase safety, and reduce the need for salt.

  • Using Recycled Materials to Prevent Stormwater Pollution
  • How can old clothing, bedding and furniture be recycled to protect our oceans? This presentation will look at the GuardDog filter, a drain protection solution that prevents sediment and hydrocarbons from entering stormwater systems. Attendees will learn how this product helps to maintain filtration efficiency, see laboratory filtration testing, performance outcomes and adoption across industries.
