The Navy’s stormwater treatment system is simple, effective for industrial sites, comparatively low cost, and requires little upkeep.

The U.S. Navy has developed, tested, and patented a stormwater runoff treatment system that meets stringent military and government regulations for industrial sites. The system is similar to a sand filter; however, instead of using sand, heavy metals, in particular, zinc and copper, are removed by a bed of special filter-adsorption materials.

Military and industrial sites must comply with increasingly stringent pollutant discharge requirements. Most commercially available stormwater runoff systems are not built to handle the high metal content present in military and industrial runoff. The Navy system meets strict regulatory requirements cost-effectively.
