Although innovative environmental and energy technologies often consume fewer natural resources than traditional methods, they encounter numerous technical, financial and regulatory impediments. Over the years, NJCAT has broken down many of the barriers, but there are still daunting challenges facing innovative technologies.
Stormwater Treatment Systems
Stormwater Management Technologies in particular are difficult to evaluate. Pollutant removal performance depends upon many factors, e.g., influent particulate size distribution, influent pollutant concentration (loading), stormwater flow rate, sump design and capacity, and maintenance. NJCAT’s extensive involvement and activities over the past decade in identifying and evaluating a number of pre-manufactured stormwater treatment devices has created the knowledge and experience base necessary to effectively and confidently assess anticipated sediment removal performance.
The New Jersey Stormwater rules (35 N.J.R. 154) clearly establish that manufactured stormwater treatment devices may be used to meet the regulatory requirements provided the pollutant removal rates are verified by NJCAT and certified by NJDEP.
