Advanced Stormwater Treatment: Dissolved Pollutants


Did you know that on average in stormwater, 45% of the phosphorus load and approximately 50% of the metal load (cadmium, copper, zinc, etc.) is present in dissolved form? And unfortunately, most of these dissolved pollutants travel downstream to our receiving water bodies and wildlife untreated (thanks to physical treatments which only capture the particulate forms). However, there are cost-effective enhancements and new methods you can employ to significantly improve your dissolved pollutant capture.

Join returning speaker, Andrew Erickson, to explore cost-effective, field-tested methods to capture stormwater dissolved pollutants and optimize your stormwater treatment performance, AND how you can apply these to your projects to effectively capture the dissolved pollutant fraction.

In this presentation, we'll explore the presence and distribution of dissolved pollutants in stormwater, the current treatment methods, and their results / shortcomings. Erickson will then outline the available chemical and biological processes and enhancements (e.g., compost-amended bioretention, Minnesota Filter, alum coagulation, flocculation, phosphorus capture, etc.) to increase dissolved pollutant capture, AND how you can implement these within your projects. Within this discussion, we'll explore real-world data from several field applications of enhanced treatment practices demonstrating the significant removal of dissolved pollutant fractions from stormwater, and the sustainability of this removal for long-term results.
