Pacific Corrugated Pip Co. (PCP)
Through electrocoagulation (EC) technology and cost-saving problem solving, Aquarius Environmental (AE) designed and implemented a Tier II plan to meet new and more stringent DEQ stormwater regulations.
Located in the rain-laden Willamette Valley, copper and zinc byproduct from the manufacturing process must be contained and mitigated before it is released into the neighboring watershed.
By incorporating languishing on-sire materials into the design, AE designed a stormwater storage and treatment system for the 12.5-acre site while saving material cost. Use of this leftover material resulted in further cost savings by allowing for a smaller and cheaper end-of-pipe EC unit while exceeding rainfall capture requirements and meeting DEQ 1200 Z permit benchmarks.
