C.I.Agent® Automatic Stormwater Diversion System (ASWDS)

Stormwater Management System that is designed to meet your site specific needs


The C.I.Agent® Automatic Stormwater Diversion System (ASWDS) is an alternative to overflowing sanitary sewers and instead provides industrial wastewater management solutions. An automated electronic system designed to change the path of water, it commonly directs dirty use water to one path and clean stormwater to another. This system is pre-configured for site-specific needs and is easy to install. No special engineer or contractor is required. The ASWDS requires little maintenance and comes with clear installation and configuration guides.

There are multiple reasons that industrial or residential stormwater management is needed. One of the most common regulatory reasons is to keep stormwater out of the sanitary sewer and keep contaminates out of stormwater. Wastewater management systems are a requirement of many industries and municipals, and often an affordable alternative to partially or fully roofing a site. Diversion can even be provided as a means to implement secondary containment.

THE ASWDS consists of these three main components to ensure proper stormwater management and has multiple applications:

 

STORMSwitch

STORMSwitch

    The STORM-Switches detect an event, like a specific amount of rain has fallen or water has flowed to an equipment wash pad.

    STORMSwitches are the sensors in the ASWDS. They continually scan the environment for an event, which could be how much rain has fallen, or how high a water area has risen. The ASWDS can use many input combinations to determine the details of the event.

 

STORMController

STORMController

    The STORMController is the heart of the system that responds to the event.

    STORMControllers respond to events by controlling the diversion method, keeping track of events and providing status information. It features a user-friendly control interface that allows you to change parameters such as automatic reset when a valve opens or when a pump is de-energized.

    One of the strongest advantages of this stormwater management system is its configurability. The configuration can be changed by using the intuitive controls on the STORMController box.

 

STORMDiverter

STORMDiverter

    The STORMDiverter is used to control and divert flow using valves, pumps, or both.

    The diverters can be pumps, valves or a combination of both. The size and type varies per application. ASWDS systems are custom designed to meet site-specific needs. A multitude of different layout and configuration options can be implemented to ensure that your system will work under any circumstances.

 

ASWDS Applications

Frequently Asked Questions

How much water needs to be diverted?
If your runoff is contained in piping we need to know the size, type and end-configuration (plain end, flanged) of your piping. If your runoff goes into a sump or other containment area, calculate the most runoff per hour. Include any runoff from other buildings or rooftop downspouts and rain gutters.
Where can I mount the STORMController?
The STORMController is typically housed in a NEMA 4X enclosure and can be mounted outdoors in most environments. It can be rained on, splashed and even washed down but it can not be submerged. Care should be taken in finding an accessible location.
Where should I mount the STORM-Switch?
This depends on the type of STORM-Switch you selected for your particular EVENT indication. The most popular STORM-Switch is the RCS (Rain Collector Switch). If the RCS is selected it must have a clear view of the sky above.
What is considered an “EVENT”?
This is completely up to you. Most regulators consider a storm event 1/10th of 1? of rainfall in a one-hour hour period. However, you may consider other indicators as to when you would want to divert. An example is when the level in a sump reaches a high point, during the flow of water from a hydrant in a wash area or when trucks arrive in a sensitive area.
Can the Automatic Stormwater Diversion System automatically return to a normal setting after an event is over?
Absolutely! You have the choice to have only a manual reset to normal or automatic reset with the option of a manual reset. The timing or delay for the automatic reset can be changed in the field to suit your requirements.
What power supply will I need?
In most cases the power requirements can be tailored to what you have available! In our experience, 110 VAC at less than 20 amps is more than sufficient.
What if my application has special needs and is not typical?
Our system is flexible so that even unforeseen changes have special allowances built in. We specialize in creating the solution for whatever the project needs.
