The Context

Maximum reliability and performance

In the context of the residential development project on the former site of Mobilier HPL (Shermag) in the Arthabaska sector of Victoriaville, the contractor Sablière de Warwick Ltd had to install a stormwater filtration system, in compliance with the requirements of the Quebec Environment Ministry (Ministère de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques or MELCC). For several years, the civil engineering contractor has advocated the use of the many products offered by Soleno. Supported by the expertise of the Quebec manufacturer, the project manager at Sablière de Warwick Ltd, Yves Boilard, chose to trust the StormFilter filtration system, approved by the MELCC, with replaceable cartridges which offers many benefits.

The Solution

The contractor therefore proceeded to the installation of a StormFilter, vault model, with nominal dimensions specially adapted for this project: width of 2.1 m (7 ft), length of 2.4 m (8.0 ft) and height of 2.7 m (9 ft). This tailored vault is composed of 3 interior separations; an inlet chamber with a 450 mm (18 in) diameter inlet, a filtration chamber containing 6 replaceable filtering cartridges of 675 mm (27 in) in height, under which is located flow kit, and an outlet chamber which includes a 600 mm (24 in) diameter outlet. Three access chimneys of 750 mm (30 in) in diameter provide access to the different chambers. A flow regulator, a control valve and a weir wall ensure the quantitative management of different flow rates.
