Stormwater applications can have similar goals to lakes, water resuse, or wastewater ponds (if an EPA discharge permit is involved). Please see those sections of our website as well for more information.

Stormwater ponds come in all types, sizes, shapes and depths. As shown below, there can be a wide variety of goals for each of them. Our GridBee and SolarBee circulators can help you meet your goals in virtually all stormwater applications.

Stormwater

Combined stormwater overflow (CSO) ponds, ponds designed to hold water until it can be directed through the wastewater treatment plant;  goals may include:

  • Keep solids suspended so they pass through without settling
  • Odor cap the top of the pond to prevent sulfide release
  • Prevent  short circuiting for longer true detention time
  • Reduction of energy cost and maintenance cost compared to existing aeration system

Industrial stormwater ponds goals may include:

  • Meet EPA NPDES discharge permit limits for pH, BOD, and TSS
  • Odor control
  • Reduction of energy cost and maintenance cost compared to existing aeration system

Neighborhood detention (short term storage during rainfall) or retention (longer term storage, usually has water all the time) stormwater ponds, goals may include:

  • Phosphorus and nitrogen reduction, to meet TMDL (total maximum daily load) standard for the watershed the pond discharges into
  • Blue-green algae control, to prevent animal deaths and odors
  • Odor cap the top of the pond
  • Reduction of energy cost and maintenance cost compared to existing fountains or aeration systems

Combined water reuse and stormwater ponds, usually used for irrigation of golf courses or farmland, goals may include:

  • Decrease odor problems at the pond
  • Decrease odor problems at the irrigation sprinkler
  • Decrease irrigation plugging problems
  • Blue-green algae control, to prevent animal deaths and odors
  • Reduction of energy cost and maintenance cost compared to existing aeration system

SolarBee SB Series solar circulators: SB Series mixers are designed to operate 24 hours per day on solar power, utilizing digital logic for power management, auto-reverse and anti-jam features. These mixers are most typically used where power is not available or when the ponds are large in size.

GridBee GF Series electric circulators: GF Series mixers are the same machines as the SB mixers without the solar equipment; they are designed to operate 24 hours per day on 120v electric power. These mixers cost less and are typically used where power is readily available or when the ponds are smaller in size.

GridBee AP Series air-powered circulators:  AP Series mixers combine patented high-flow Long-Distance Circulation technology with a clog-free air-powered pump. They have no moving parts in the water and no electricity in the water.  Learn more
