Stormwater and Industrial Runoff Management Solutions

Stormwater and Industrial Runoff Management Solutions

Stormwater and industrial runoff is a leading cause for water pollution. Stormwater runs off solid surfaces and collects pollutants such as pesticides, oil, bacteria and other chemicals, and then deposits them into our waterways. This runoff can kill aquatic life, making our water unhealthy.

Businesses are under increasing scrutiny regarding their environmental impacts and must comply with the Clean Water Act (CWA) and regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Many businesses simply lack the manpower or knowledge to implement regulations safely and effectively.

MBZ Industrial (MBZI) has solutions to help prevent harmful stormwater and industrial runoff, making it easy for customers to comply with regulations while keeping themselves environmentally friendly.

Wastewater classifiers

Wastewater classifiers work to quickly and effectively distinguish risks in unknown wastewater batches, allowing quick classification for proper treatment. The Spilflyter Wastewater Classifier Kit simultaneously tests for acid/base, petroleum/organic solvent, hydrogen sulfide, nitrite, nitrate and fluoride risks. The laminated wastewater classifier chart determines the possible presence of wastewater chemical types according to color changes on the strip.

Catch Basin Filters

Catch Basin Filters are an easy addition to your catch basin, allowing you to capture multiple pollutants such as hydrocarbons, heavy metals, sediments and other organics from stormwater and industrial runoff. Ultra HydroKleen is the only catch basin filter that allows you to use more than one type of filter media, giving you the ability to mix and match filter media depending on your specific needs. Filters are designed to remove hydrocarbons/oil, chemicals, odor, phosphorus and heavy metals. The HydroKleen also has a bypass system to prevent flooding or ponding during high-flow storm events. It exceeds 80% sediment removal efficiency.

Drain Guards

Drain Guards are engineered to filter stormwater waste before it becomes a problem in the water system. It removes contaminants such as litter, sand, and oil from stormwater flow. Drain Guards are typically composed of a geotextile fabric, which allows easy installation. This makes it ideal for industrial facilities, construction sites, and parking lots where stormwater runoff is likely to carry oil, eroded soil, debris and fuel contaminants from cars. MBZI’s UltraTech Ultra-Drain Guard is made completely with Ultra-X-Tex material, a 100% recycled content product. It allows for superior water flow rate, with built in-overflow ports to prevent ponding and flooding. Installation is as easy as simply raising the grate, placing the drain guard over the opening and carefully lowering the grate back into place.

MBZI is committed to helping reduce stormwater and industrial runoff to protect our environment for future generations. For more information or ordering on any of our spill and containment solutions, please visit
