Downspout removes zinc and other heavy metals from roof runoff

StormwateRx LLC, a provider of industrial stormwater treatment and filtration systems, announced the availability of Aquip Downspout, a new configuration of the Aquip stormwater filtration system specifically for attachment to roof downspouts. Aquip Downspout removes particulate and dissolved zinc and other heavy metals that are often present from facilities with zinc-coated or galvanized metal roofing or HVAC equipment. Stormwater running off of facilities with galvanized metals is a major cause of zinc pollution and aquatic toxicity in local waterways. Installing Aquip Downspout on a building with galvanized roofing can permanently reduce zinc concentrations by 98%, helping industrial facilities meet stormwater benchmarks for zinc and other metals.
