WHY THESE PRODUCTS?

While automation is not new, stormwater automation is only in its infancy. It’s no wonder Construction EcoServices, a leader in Stormwater Innovation has been involved in many of the first stormwater automation projects. From managing subsurface underground detention / rainwater harvesting systems through weather predictive technology to creating automated settling ponds for stormwater quality, Construction EcoServices is once again on the bleeding edge of stormwater management. The future of stormwater is automated, through controls, sensors and telemetry, we will soon change the way stormwater is managed. A move from passive control to active control is on the horizon.

Our Batch Detention Products:

smartPOND

Automated Detention & Drainage System

Why Do We Recommend This Product?

“No question about it, smartPOND and other automated stormwater solutions are the future – and the future really is now. Using automation to manage the retention, detention and drainage of watersheds offers a world of new benefits.”

David Batts
Stormwater Systems Director

About smartPOND

Our weather is constantly changing, yet our stormwater controls remain the same. smartPOND takes passive stormwater controls and gives them brains, allowing for either pre-programmed stormwater pond management that actively measures and releases stormwater to match your regulatory regime, as well as application-based real time control that allows you to retain or release water at the tip of your fingers.

Through the use of an innovative, automated rotating skimmer, an entire watershed can be controlled automatically or at the push of a button.  Routine inspections can be monitored remotely with the smartPOND onboard camera, giving owners and 3rd party operators instant feedback on the condition of the system. Automated processes also make users aware of upcoming system maintenance needs, sending alerts to users’ smartphones/e-mail with advance notice of battery, solar panel or other component maintenance needs within a predetermined time frame. smartPOND is the intelligent choice for your automated detention, retention or rainwater harvesting system.

smartBATCH

Automated Batch Detention Systems

Why Do We Recommend This Product?

“SmartBATCH is the ultimate solution for the batch detention BMP. Ease of specification and installation make it a true “plug-and-play” option. There is no other product on the market that can provide the real time data and analytics that SmartBATCH offers.”

Dan Conaway
Territory Manager: Central Texas

Why Batch Detention?

A batch detention basin is an extended detention basin is primarily used to remove particulate pollutants and to mimic predevelopment hydrology. Batch detention basins have superior water quality performance over traditional sedimentation/sand filters and achieve a total suspended solids (TSS) removal efficiency of 91%.

  • 91% TSS removal = 20% less volume = smaller basin
  • No splitter box
  • No gabions
  • No sand
  • No perforated pipes

Why smartBATCH?

Finally, a prepackaged batch detention solution is here.
The smartBATCH is a prepackaged, easy to install, automated water level control valve that regulates stormwater depth and meets batch detention requirements per the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Edwards Aquifer Protection Plan (EAPP).

smartBATCH functions by rotating 90 degrees to open and close a rotary weir that is connected to an outfall pipe up to 24-inches in diameter. It is pre-programmed to hold water for 12 hours and then rotates slowly over a 48-hour period to drain the batch detention pond completely. Once empty, the bucket returns to its upright and closed position in anticipation of the next rainfall event. Fundamentally, smartBATCH allows TSS to settle out of the detained water body, the releases the cleanest water from the top of the pond.

Monitoring and full system controls at the tip of your fingers

smartBATCH takes passive stormwater controls and gives them brains, allowing for both pre-programmed stormwater quality management and application-based real-time controls. Routine inspections can be monitored remotely with the smartBATCH onboard camera, giving owners and operators instant feedback. Automated processes also make users aware of upcoming system maintenance needs by sending alerts to a smartphone or an email address. All components are modular and can easily be replaced by the user.

BENEFITS

  • Achieves greater efficiency over sand filters (91% TSS removal)
  • Maintains settling pond benefits while dewatering
  • Advance or real-time programming of dewatering events
  • Real time data available – water levels, gate position, temperature, photos, maintenance records and more
  • Tough and versatile design
  • 2-year warranty
  • 1-year smartBATCH maintenance and maintenance alert notifications

OptiRTC

Stormwater Management Control Platform

About smartPOND

Advanced Harvesting and Stormwater Management Control Platform
The OptiRTC technology allows on-site stormwater management systems to drain storage in advance of forecasted weather events or other triggers, improving their stormwater-management capacity at the time of the storm. With the combination of real-time weather forecasts, urban runoff models, redundant cloud computing and the ioBridge Internet-Of-Things platform, OptiRTC can actively operate cisterns, ponds, and other detention systems to dramatically improve stormwater management.

BENEFITS

  • Monitors forecast and onsite device inputs to anticipate storm flows to detention
  • Drains cistern/detention storage ahead of precipitation event in proportion to storm volume
  • Operates in cistern mode during storm events – capturing water for harvesting applications
  • Provides peak-flow shaving capabilities for storms in excess of design storms
  • HS 25 load rated
  • Low life cycle costs
  • Easy maintenance
  • Creative layouts and geometry
  • Available in a variety of colors
