Storm Water Biofiltration Device

Storm Water Biofiltration Device

The Village of Dousman recently constructed a storm water biofiltration device as part of the Main Street Reconstruction Project.  Due to the elevation differences between the gravity storm sewer and the proposed biofiltration treatment area, Ruekert & Mielke, Inc. (R/M) and the Village developed a unique design to intercept and treat smaller storm events.
