Last month, the Seventy1 team took on the task of servicing eight underground stormwater filtration vaults at a large industrial property in Temecula. These particular vaults are the type that house StormFilter cartridges made by Contech Engineered Solutions. The StormFilter cartridges capture solids, metals, oils and nutrients as runoff flows through them.
Maintenance of the vaults at this property required cartridge replacement in addition to the ordinary removal of standing water and sediment. It was a messy job to remove the buildup of sediment and muck that had accumulated, but now the vaults are ready to filter whatever stormwater comes their way.
