The affordable Stormwater Management Inc. DownSpout StormFilter, with its compact size, passive operation and strong performance can be easily rooftop runoff.
Industrial facilities generate pollutants, often as airborne particulates, which settle onto building rooftops and get washed into stormwater. In addition, galvanized coatings are used extensively in commercial and industrial roofing applications to protect steel from corrosion.

Zinc leaches into the rainwater as a part of the corrosion inhibition process. These pollutants, along with copper, lead and other metals, can contribute to exceedence of water quality standards and flow to waterways where they can be toxic to aquatic organisms. The affordable Stormwater Management Inc. DownSpout StormFilter, with its compact size, passive operation and strong performance can be easily rooftop runoff.
