StormChamber™ is an open bottom, arch-shaped, HDPE infiltration chamber which functions in both permeable and non-permeable soils for subsurface retention, detention, recharge and reuse of storm water, or gray water, designed to overcome the deficiencies of other technologies. It provides a higher level of nutrient and pollutant removal by taking advantage of the natural biological and physical properties of the soil. StormChamber™ systems mimic pre-development conditions by putting post-construction run off back into the ground approximately where it used to go, maintaining base flow to streams, wetlands, lakes, ponds and countering salt-water intrusion in coastal areas.
