Upstream Technologies is here because we love water. Our goal is to help reduce the costs of managing stormwater, and we continue to develop products and services to achieve this goal. The SAFL Baffle was first introduced in 2011, and it is a pretreatment system to lower costs for managing total suspended solids (TSS) in stormwater systems. The SAFL Baffle was developed and verified by 4 years of research at the University of Minnesota.
In 2015, we teamed with BMP Products to offer the SNOUT and Bioskirt, which work with the SAFL Baffle and manage floating trash and oil in stormwater runoff. Also in 2015, we introduced the MPD Infiltrometer. This is a quick and inexpensive test for saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ksat) and soil capillary pressure. It allows engineers to do a better job designing and sizing infiltration practices, allows project inspectors and public works employees to verify proper construction of these practices, and provides solid data for annual inspections of these practices.
Upstream Technologies is committed to research and development of instrumentation systems that will allow owners and operators of stormwater systems to obtain real-time data on the performance of their systems. This will allow them to further reduce costs by operating their systems in the most efficient manner and making the best use of future capital expenditures. Look for these new systems to be introduced over the next couple of years.
Innovative Sediment Solutions
The SAFL Baffle is a cost effective option for capturing sands and large silt sediments which will improve the function of your storm sewer. Find out more about how some Engineers are using the SAFL Baffle as part of a treatment train to meet total suspended solids goals.
Saving You Money
Stormwater ponds, infiltration basins and underground vaults are essential tools for managing stormwater. Find out how using a SAFL Baffle and sump manhole upstream of your other BMPs as pretreatment can extend their life and reduce Public Works maintenance costs.
