STORMWATER Innovations

Upstream Technologies is here because we love water. We make the SAFL Baffle stormwater pretreatment treatment system to lower costs for complying with Clean Water Act regulations. Our simple, easy to maintain stormwater quality BMP keeps more water clean.

We work with consulting engineers who need to meet Total Suspended Solids (TSS) goals for their clients, public works engineers who need to reduce detention pond or rain garden maintenance, and utility managers needing to make their existing storm sewer systems work better.
