    I shared info regarding the permeable reactive weir with my students at the two day Stormwater Chemistry and Applications to Monitoring and Treatment training at Hawaii Department of Health in Honolulu on January 23, 2015. Both Maui County and the Navy expressed interest in doing a pilot study on the technology.

    I just returned from StormCon 2014 in Portland, Oregon. The conference had a great turnout, good speakers, and knowledgeable exhibitors. I attended most of the BMP Case Studies and Advanced Research Topics sessions and visited all the exhibitors involved with stormwater treatment to learn about the latest technologies and explore potential product collaboration. The conference provided a great stormwater science update and an overview of current research topics.

    My favorite talks included:
    • Jennifer McIntyre's talk on stormwater toxicity and the efficacy of bioretention (does a great job removing highway runoff pollutants - juvenile coho die in pure highway runoff);
    • University of Idaho's talk on biochar removal efficiencies (doug fir biochar is better than Kentucky bluegrass);
    • Lisa Rozmyn's talk on the Washington Stormwater Center's roof runoff study (asphalt shingles aren't that bad compared to the alternatives); and
    • City of Portland's talk on bioretention plants (sedges are better than cattails and sunflowers).
    StormCon will be in Austin, Texas next year - August 2 - 6, 2015. As if I needed another reason to go to Austin. I'll be there!

    Intracep has filed an extensive patent application for permeable reactive weir (PRW) technology. This innovative surface water treatment technology is a small concrete dam with multilevel fish passage built in. Like traditional surface water weirs, PRWs create step pools that settle particulates and oxygenate the water. Unlike traditional weirs, the PRW removes pollutants (including thermal) and provides fish passage.

    After nearly a year of research and design, the PRW technology is now patent pending.

    Intracep has signed an agreement with Lane Powell to assist us with patenting a new class of water treatment technology that can remove pollutants (including thermal) from surface water, while increasing DO and providing fish passage.
