SCE recently completed the installation of Stormceptor component to an existing stormwater drainage system in southeast PA. The unit required the excavation of a 20’ deep, 16’ by 16’ hole and the interruption of the existing system. For the duration of the construction effort, the storm drain system remained active. Crews installed a temporary diversion whereby water collected in the affected system was captured and diverted through a pump system to another storm drain system.
Excavation required the use of a slide rail system to stabilize the dig site. In addition, subsurface conditions required jackhammers to cut through more than 10’ of rock below grade.
The new system is designed to collect water being discharged from the storm sewer, separate oils for removal, and discharge the oil-free storm water into the existing system.
