StormChamber is an open bottom, HDPE infiltration chamber which functions in both permeable and non-permeable soils for subsurface retention, detention, recharge and reuse of storm water, designed to overcome the deficiencies of other technologies. It provides a higher level of nutrient and pollutant removal by taking advantage of the natural biological and physical properties of the soil. StormChamber systems mimic pre-development conditions by putting post-construction runoff back into the ground approximately where it used to go, maintaining base flow to streams, wetlands, lakes, ponds and countering salt-water intrusion in coastal areas. During “normal” conditions, approximately 50% of stream flow is from base flow. Base flow comprises 100% of stream flow during low flow periods. The SedimenTrap component of the StormChamber system eliminates the need for pre-treatment devices and provides a higher level of sediment and debris removal and retention at a fraction of the cost.
HydroLogic Solutions is a multi-disciplinary environmental consulting and water resources research company founded and operated by experts in the fields of ecology, biology and land development. The company staff and its Advisory Board have over 150 years of combined experience in the above disciplines as well as expert knowledge in the areas of environmental planning, engineering, and public health.
In order to meet compliance with the EPA Phase II Storm Water and Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) regulations, HydroLogic Solutions has developed the StormChamber as a highly cost effective and environmentally sound alternative management tool for the control of storm water runoff, enhancement of water quality, peak flow attenuation, sediment maintenance and control, and nitrogen, phosphorous, and other pollutant removal, designed to overcome the deficiencies of currently existing technologies.
Through laboratory development and applied research it is the mission of HydroLogic Solutions to provide innovative and environmentally sound solutions to storm water management and non-point source pollution problems. We are committed to provide solutions and address future storm water management challenges in a practical and cost effective manner.
