What is an inlet protection barrier?

Inlet protection consists of permeable barriers installed around an inlet to filter runoff and remove sediment prior to entering a storm drain inlet. Inlet protection can be constructed from rock socks, sediment control logs, silt fence, block and rock socks, or other materials approved by the local jurisdiction.

What are inlet filters?

A plant inlet filter is a pressure vessel with an opening enclosure at one end to remove the filter elements. It is located at the origin of a natural gas processing plant and is designed to remove solids from the inlet gas stream.

What is a gutter buddy?

Gutterbuddy is made from recycled, synthetic fibers that filter out sediment and debris. This lightweight curb inlet filter effectively prevents sediment, debris and other pollutants from entering stormwater systems.

What is a dandy bag?

Patented and designed for use on curb and gutter inlets, the Dandy Curb Bag filters out the most stubborn sediment-laden storm water. The suspended solids are allowed to settle out of the slowed flow and are captured by the rough and tough Dandy Curb Bag prior to entering the inlet.

What is a storm drain inlet?

Storm drain inlets are the openings that allow stormwater to flow into a storm drainage system. There are many types of inlets, including: Curb opening inlet: A long, narrow, horizontal opening at the edge of a curb. Grate inlet: A grate covering to a drain at the low point of a road, swale, or another drainage site.

What is a drop inlet?

A drop inlet collects stormwater from a parking lot. DESCRIPTION. Drain inlets collect water from roads and parking lots and convey it to an underground storm drain system. Drain inlets incorporated into a curb and gutter systems are called curb inlets.

What is inlet screen?

Inlet Screen Inlet Screens remove sand, grit, textiles, grease and other residue in the pretreatment phase of the wastewater treatment process is essential to prevent costly damage to equipment and improve process efficiency.

How do you filter stormwater?

Stormwater is filtered through a natural, or an engineered filter media, and systems are commonly designed with two chambers. The first is a sediment chamber, or forebay, where larger particles deposit before the runoff water is filtered in a filtration bed of sand where fine particles are removed.

How do you use a dandy bag?

Place the sandbags lengthways/parallel to the direction of the water flow. Ensure the open end of the bag is folded under the filled portion of the bag. Flatten down each row of bags with your foot to eliminate gaps, create a tight seal and support the structure of the wall.

What are the parts of a storm drainage system?

The complete system will be referred to as a storm drain system and will normally consist of curbs and/or gutters, inlets or catch basins, laterals or leads, trunk lines or mains, junction chambers, manholes, and ponds.

What is the difference between a catch basin and storm drain?

In short, Catch Basins are holes in the ground that “catch” the rainfall or any runoff surface water. Storm Drains are a type of Catch Basin, but are typically along the sides of roads to deal exclusively with storm runoff. Storm Sewers are the systems that carry the water away.

What is inlet in drainage?

What are stormwater inlet filters/screens?

Patented stormwater inlet filters / screens are a Best Management Practice (BMP) to reduce stormwater management costs, prevent pollution, and prevent flooding caused by debris and pollution in stormwater pipes and systems.

What types of inlets can stormwater studio design and analyze?

Stormwater Studio has the ability to design and analyze a system of inlets along with your underground pipe system. It has built-in capability to analyze the following inlet types: Inlets are located at the upstream end of a Line and can be in a sag or on a longitudinal slope and can be of any size.

What is a curb inlet screen?

Curb Inlet Screens allow for easy maintenance without confined space entry, and decrease the maintenance frequency of below grade stormwater detention systems. Stock size lengths are 4 feet, 6 feet, and 8 feet.

What happens if your filters are not installed in stormwater catch basins?

Here are pictures of stormwater catch basins and drainage pipes where our filters are not installed. In these catch basins, leaves, plastic bags, and paper are entering the drainage pipes. This leads to pollution, floods, and costly cleanup. These pictures show stormwater catch basins where our filters are installed.
