SPEL ENVIRONMENTAL™ draws on 40 years’ experience from over 45 countries in the design and manufacture of Stormwater Quality Improvement Devices (SQIDs) that are highly efficient in reducing the average annual loads of suspended solids and nutrients, and the separation of petroleum hydrocarbons and oil containment. This research project is a joint collaboration between SPEL ENVIRONMENTAL™ and the SWRG to characterise the quality of urban stormwater runoff in SEQ by monitoring the performance of SPEL ENVIRONMENTAL™ SQIDs installed on the Sunshine Coast over a period of five years.
The results of this five-year monitoring and research project will provide valuable new research knowledge on the stormwater quality improvements that could be expected in catchment stormwater runoff due to the implementation of various SQID treatment trains as part of an overall WSUD strategy. The study findings will have significant implications for the way stormwater is managed in Australia and overseas.
This project is funded and supported by SPEL ENVIRONMENTAL™.
