In 2014, the winner of our most innovative category for the Best Urban BMP in the Bay Award was the Maryland Port Administration’s installation of an Algal Turf Scrubber. The project demonstrates a unique retrofit solution for an ultra-impervious site as well as represents a novel treatment mechanism to promote greater levels of pollutant removal than traditional BMPs.
Just recently, the Chesapeake Bay Program recently approved the use of Algal Flow-way Technologies for getting nutrient and sediment reductions in the Bay model.
Join us for a webcast where we will introduce you to this innovative technology and how they work, how you can get credit for them toward your Bay TMDL and MS4 permit goals, the very cool BUBBA-award-winning pilot project located in the Baltimore Harbor, and looking ahead into the future on how this technology can be improved to increase nutrient removal.
It’s sure to be a raucous good time – join us!
