Aquip (uh-kwip) is a patented†, enhanced media filtration system for industrial stormwater applications. This stormwater treatment BMP removes fine particulates and dissolved pollutants in a simple and easy-to-use configuration. Aquip is typically installed above ground with a single pump station.
Aquip is available in several performance levels, each specifically designed for the reduction of stormwater pollutants such as suspended solids, turbidity, heavy metals (including dissolved metals), organics (e.g. BOD, volatile hydrocarbons, PCBs, PAHs), and nutrients (e.g. nitrogen and phosphorus). Targeted metals include copper, zinc, iron, lead, aluminum, nickel, cadmium, and other metals.
