Standard Specification for Inlet Filters with a Rigid Frame
|Publication Date:||1 May 2017|
This specification covers geosynthetic storm sewer inlet filters used in highway drainage, roadway, residential, commercial, and industrial applications. The inlet filter is comprised of a rigid frame and a removable geosynthetic sediment bag. The sediment bag hangs suspended from the rigid frame and includes a bypass that shall allow water flow into the drainage structure if the bag is completely filled with sediment. Water flow through the bypass shall equal or exceed the design flow of the inlet required at a specified drainage location.
The requirements of this specification are intended to provide an inlet filter system to collect sediment, trash, leaves, and other storm water contaminants from surface storm water runoff at drainage inlet locations during temporary site construction.
