BioPod™ Biofilter System Approved by the City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services

BioPod™ Biofilter System Approved by the City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services

Oldcastle Infrastructure™ is part of the Building Products division of CRH, the largest building materials company in North America. Oldcastle Infrastructure is pleased to announce that the BioPod Biofilter System with StormMix™ Media has been reviewed and approved by the City of Portland, Oregon, Bureau of Environmental Services.

As such, the BioPod is now included on the City’s list of Approved Manufactured Stormwater Treatment Technologies (MSTTs). This approval confirms that the BioPod meets Portland’s rigorous standards. The City of Portland joins a group of forward-looking jurisdictions, including the States of Washington, New Jersey, and Virginia, that have granted regulatory approval to the BioPod. Engineers now have the opportunity to design any of BioPod’s four configurations into stormwater management systems for projects within the City’s jurisdiction.

BioPod systems utilize an advanced biofiltration design for filtration, sorption, and biological uptake to remove Total Suspended Solids (TSS), metals, nutrients, gross solids, trash and debris as well as petroleum hydrocarbons from stormwater runoff. Thanks to its advanced and sustainable StormMix media, BioPod has the highest flow rate among approved biofiltration systems, enabling a smaller footprint, with or without vegetation.

Offering flexibility of design and construction for your storm drain system, the BioPod system comes as an all-in-one, single-piece unit composed of durable precast concrete for ease of installation and a long service life. The BioPod system offers an optional integrated high-flow bypass that eliminates the need for a separate bypass structure, reducing costs and simplifying the design.

“Now that the BioPod has received approval, designers in Portland will have a state-of-the-art, engineered, high flow rate bioretention option for stormwater treatment and green infrastructure solutions,” said Joanna Ogintz, Oldcastle Infrastructure Regulatory Engineer.

The acquisition augments Oldcastle Infrastructure’s line of storm water conveyance, storage and treatment solutions. “We’re excited to welcome Suntree’s employees and customers to the Oldcastle Infrastructure family,” said Matt Clemson, General Manager of Oldcastle Infrastructure’s storm water business. “With more than 25 years of manufacturing and engineering excellence, Suntree’s storm water treatment products complement our existing offering very well. This is a milestone on our journey to offering the most comprehensive storm water solutions to our customers in North America.”

Founded in 1993, Suntree markets a full-line of proprietary storm water treatment products with a combination of more than 30 patents and regulatory approvals. “Our product line and services have evolved to help solve storm water pollution problems,” said Tom Happel, Suntree President. “The ability for municipalities to retrofit existing storm water structures with our products saves taxpayer dollars and brings local watershed management within specification without sacrificing quality.”

Suntree has a proven track record of offering eco-friendly storm water treatment solutions that are easy to maintain. Their products are based on proprietary Hydro-Variant Technology™, a unique approach to storm water treatment which affords maximum treatment without compromising the hydrology of the watershed.

One such example is the Nutrient Separating Baffle Box® (NSBB), currently the industry standard for online sediment capture without associated head loss and scouring. Presently, it is the only hydrodynamic separator available with patented screening technology to prevent nutrient leaching and septic water.
