Session #10: Trapping Trash in Stormwater – The LITTATRAP Way
Expires Wed June 9, 2021
The Enviropod LittaTrap is an innovative catch basin inlet filter device designed for easy retrofit installation into new and existing stormwater catch basins to specifically target sediment, trash, debris and gross pollutants, capturing them at source and preventing stormwater runoff pollutants from entering into lakes, streams, harbors and beaches. The LittaTrap Inlet Filter System is a low cost, easily maintainable solution for capturing sediment and particles larger than 5mm. The LittaTrap is also effective when placed as a pre-treatment device for use in a treatment train with other hydrodynamic separators, filtration devices, ponds and wetlands. In many cases, it is often the most practical solution for retrofits.
The LittaTrap inlet filter system can also be fitted with site-specific performance liners that are designed to capture a variety of stormwater pollutants, such as small sediment particles and/or plastic resin pellets (nurdles). Each performance liner is designed to fit easily inside the LittaTrap basket.
At the completion of this one-hour OJT session, participants will be able to demonstrate the following:
- Understand filter features, design options, considerations, and installation guidelines.
- Understand the operation and maintenance involved – including features and benefits.
- What quality controls and regulatory approvals and certifications are offered.
- A review of pre-treatment application and maintenance guidelines including estimated costs.
