Fabco Industries Bacteria Treatment Stormwater Solutions

At Fabco Industries, we know that finding the right solution isn’t always easy, but we’re here to help! This page will take you through various problems people face every day when it comes to bacteria in our stormwater, and offer an appropriate solution for their needs. From simple storm drains in parking lots, to roof runoff, we aim to find a cost effective and competitive stormwater solution to every issue. All of our bacteria treatment stormwater solutions utilize our patented FabGuard filter media for the most effective solution.

See below for bacteria treatment stormwater solutions fit for grated/curb inlet storm drains, roof runoff, and centralized precast vaults.

FabGuard Bacteria Stormwater Treatment Technology and Filter Cartridge

When combined with Fabco’s stormwater filtration systems, FabGuard can be configured to reduce bacteria using centralized or decentralized treatment at varying flow rates.  FabGuard can be applied to catch basin inserts like StormBasin and Connector Pipe Screens systems for retrofit applications. FabGuard also works with end-of-pipe solutions such as the cartridge-based StormSafe and high-flow Helix vaults.

Bacteria Treatment Stormwater Solutions
for Storm Drains (Grated & Curb Inlets)

Grated and curb inlet storm drains are extremely common. From roadways and parking lots, to industrial sites and waste treatment facilities, municipal storm drains are found just about everywhere. With our proprietary filter cartridges and FabGuard filter media technology, our StormBasins are able to fit a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and storm drain types.

roof runoff

Bacteria Treatment Stormwater Solutions for Roof Runoff

As rainwater runs off roofs, water quality can be affected by roofing material and deposited materials, so it’s incredibly important to make sure this water is being treated, especially with green roofs becoming more popular. When it comes to roof runoff, we offer both above ground and below ground bacteria treatment stormwater solutions in the form of our FabGuard cartridge based DownSpout Filter System.

DownSpout with StormBasin Cartridge Filter System Configuration

  • Available in Above Ground and Below Ground configurations.
  • 2 or 3 Cartridge designs provide filter flow rates up to 520 gpm (dependent on cartridge type). Best for sediments, solids and dissolved pollutants such as: metals, bacteria, and nutrients.
  • Built in high flow bypass.
  • Internal pretreatment debris screen chamber separates and keeps solid materials out of the filter cartridge area.

Bacteria Treatment Stormwater Solutions for Centralized Precast Vaults

Centralized treatment vaults are worth considering for those looking to treat large volumes of water at a single location rather than purchasing catch basin inserts for each inlet. Using one of our centralized vault solutions can drastically cut down on costs related to treating a high quantity of inlets, it also greatly simplifies maintenance operations.

Helix Filter System

The Fabco Helix vault is a two-step treatment process that incorporates an inlet chamber used to reduce clogging from sediments and debris, and a secondary treatment chamber that houses Fabco’s Helix filter elements. Coarse pollutants contained in the stormwater runoff is captured upfront –  this sediment separator treats water at higher flow rates and can be serviced from the surface level with a Vac truck. The pre-treated water exiting the first chamber will keep the Helix filters cleaner, helping maintain flow rates and effectiveness while minimizing the need for maintenance.

StormSafe Cartridge Based Filter Vault

The StormSafe cartridge based filter vault system are ideal for central drainage areas that require stormwater treatment beyond simple gross pollutants and trash removal. By utilizing the same proven filter technology from the StormBasin product line, the StormSafe Cartridge Vault can reduce concentrations of targeted stormwater pollutants in a cost-effective manner. The StormSafe Cartridge Vault is ideal for parking areas, storage areas and maintenance yards that have high concentrations of heavy metals, and oils & grease loads. The StormSafe Cartridge Vault is a good choice for projects with a treatment flow rate of 3 cubic feet/sec or less.
