- XR-5 (chemical resistant)
- PVC (vinyl) 22 oz, 30 oz, or 35 oz
Converting Material to MIL Thickness:
1 mil = 0.025 mm
10 oz vinyl = 0.50 mm = 13.2 mil
18 oz vinyl = 0.50 mm = 20.0 mil
22 oz vinyl = 0.60 mm = 24.0 mil
28 oz vinyl = 0.75 mm = 30.0 mil
35 oz vinyl = 0.95 mm = 38.0 mil (hi-tear)
Aluminum Frames: Provide durable, long lasting support
EPA laws prohibit waste water from being discharged onto the ground or storm drains. In most cases the wastewater is collected at the job site and subsequently discharged into a sanitary sewer connection (wash sinks, toilets, etc. that are connected to a sewage treatment plant). The level of contaminants must be below certain limits for sanitary sewer discharge. If the contaminants are too high, the wastewater must first be pretreated before sanitary sewer discharge.
What you can do to help keep your water clean?
Did you know...
Stormwater is the excess rainfall that isn't absorbed into the ground and runs off to nearby lakes, canals, the Intracoastal Waterway, and the ocean. Along the way, it can pick up debris, chemicals, dirt and other pollutants and carry them into our surface waters. Much of this stormwater receives little or NO treatment! That means that what goes in, comes out, in to the waters we use use for fishing, boating and swimming.
International dumping and discharging into stormwater systems, as well as accidental spills that could enter the system should be reported immediately so remedial action can be taken by the proper response team.
Why it matters
- Debris can be harmful to wildlife
- Nutrients (from leaves, grass, fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides) can lead to fish kills and excessive amounts of algae in the water
- Bacteria (from pet waste and dead animals) can produce health concerns
- Sediment can reduce the system's ability to handle potential flooding and adversely affect aquatic organisms
- Chemicals, oils, and paints can be toxic to plants and animals
Only stormwater belongs in a storm drain
These are some things that should not be discharged to or place in a stormwater system:
- Leaves or grass clippings
- Wash water with detergents
- Fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides
- Paints, oils, or solvents
- Sediment or debris
