Flocculant Usage in Construction Stormwater Treatment

Thursday, September 22, 2022 - 11.00AM Mountain Time

Flocculants provide an innovative solution for managing construction stormwater runoff with their efficiency in reducing turbidity in the effluent.  With proper application and dosage, these chemicals improve the performance of sediment control practices in capturing fine-sized soil particles. Dosage, product selection, agitation, and application requirements of flocculants vary based on flocculant type and soil-dependent nature of the chemical agents. This presentation will cover the current status of flocculant usage in the U.S. for construction stormwater treatment and recap research findings on optimum dosage delivery requirements and residual concentration detection methods.
