Washington State DOE stormwater report - Case Study


Fitesa, a non-wovens manufacturer in the state of Washington consistently tests stormwater but experienced problems meeting the stormwater standards for zinc and copper discharge. Zinc is used in galvanized metal, shingles, finishes in paints, and car tires—zinc iseverywhere. Copper is used in items such as in brake linings and pressure treated lumber. At sites near heavily traveled roads, zinc, copper and lead get passed into the air and deposit on roofs and other surfaces. During the next rain event, pollutants that comprise the environmental deposition become a component of the site’s stormwater runoff. this study shows how MetalZorb from CleanWay Environmental Partners succeeded in helping this site achieve compliance with stringent regulations of the Washington State Department of Ecology (DOE).
