Canal Boatyard of Seattle is staying ahead of environmental regulations with the recent installation of a new Stormwater RX Aquip filtration system designed to help reduce copper levels in runoff.

The system consists of a large holding tank with several different layers of filter media, with fabric filters positioned at key points in the process. As the untreated runoff makes its way through the various strata, powered by gravity, contaminants are captured and held.

The boatyard notes that the Washington State Department of Ecology has not yet issued its final decision on allowable copper levels in runoff.

“We are confident that Canal Boatyard will meet the new discharge standards, once they’re issued, and we’ll be able to serve our customers without interruption during the busiest time of the year,” boatyard manager Ken Radon said in a statement.
