Stormwater Drainage issues Stormwater Drainage issues adjbarton (Civil/Environmental) (OP) 27 Jun 17 11:31 Hi, does anyone have any experience of management of faeces in stormwater drainage channels? RE: Stormwater Drainage issues TerryScan (Civil/Environmental) 27 Jun 17 12:44 I have not personally had to manage this, but was at a conference some time ago where a workshop focused on TMDLs and the subject watershed had a fecal coliform impairment: http://www.novaregion.org/index.aspx?NID=394 RE: Stormwater Drainage issues beej67 (Civil/Environmental) 27 Jun 17 19:12 I've got a project right now that's at an industrial facility, where a pollutant containment pond (which also catches stormwater) had a FC impairment. We're working on a design to turn it into 100%(ish) retention and on-site treatment. Not sure that helps your question though.

They specialize in agricultural waste management. I used to work for them many moons ago. We never used channels for management. We did use waste retention ponds where you stored the waste and used a grinder pump to pump the sludge into a tank on a tractor where it was applied to agricultural fields. if the solid have been removed, you can spray irrigate the effluent.
