Newterra® Stormwaterx® Aquip® Filtration System Receives General Use Level Designation (GULD) Approval From The Washington State Department Of Ecology
The Newterra® StormwateRx® Aquip® Enhanced Filtration System has received performance recognition and certification from the Washington State Department of Ecology. Using its Technology Assessment Protocol – Ecology (TAPE), Washington State awarded the Aquip Filtration System a General Use Level Designation (GULD) for basic, enhanced and phosphorus treatment. With this designation, the StormwateRx Aquip System is approved for use on new and redevelopment projects with total suspended solids (TSS), dissolved copper, and zinc.
“The StormwateRx Aquip System is one of the only GULD-approved technologies designed for above-grade municipal or industrial retrofit applications. It is also the most straightforward technology for a municipality to maintain,” says Ted Lathrop, Professional Engineer (PE), Newterra Product Manager
The GULD approval was granted using the State of Washington TAPE’s rigorous evaluation protocol and peer-reviewed regulatory certification process recognized in multiple state and municipal districts nationwide. TAPE evaluations must be conducted in the field, at a site in the Pacific Northwest or a Department of Ecology-approved stormwater technology evaluation facility. Evaluation results must meet strict performance goals for one or more defined treatment categories.
