Stormwater Management Filtration Devices – Funding for Development of a Performance Test Procedure

July 7, 2014 — Following the successful launch of our online Stormwater Management Stakeholder Forum and the completion of the Procedure for Laboratory Testing of Oil-Grit Separators in September 2013, GLOBE Performance Solutions (GPS) has continued to seek greater input and dialogue to support the development of additional procedures and protocols in the stormwater sector.

In collaboration with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), GPS has prepared a draft proposal for the “Development of a Performance Test Procedure for Filtration Devices in Stormwater Management Applications.” The timing for this proposal coincides with the ever increasing need for a Canadian testing and verification procedure for filtration devices that will help guide the demonstration and deployment of effective stormwater management technologies and solutions. Development of the proposed procedure aligns with collaborative, evidence-based approaches to build vendor credibility and buyer confidence by providing assurance that technology performance claims are valid, credible and supported by high quality, independent test data and information.

GLOBE Performance Solutions is currently in the process of identifying and contacting stakeholders at the local municipal government level, who may be able to commit funding to support the development of this test procedure.
