Paper Title:
Field Application of Particle Filtration with EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) Engineered Media of Road Runoff
  Abstract

Metal elements or other constituents transported in urban and transportation land use rainfall runoff are often adsorbed on or incorporated with entrained particles that are ubiquitous in such runoff. EPP(Expanded Polypropylene) engineered media with a large surface area was developed to treat road runoff. Field application of particle filtration reactor(PFR), which combined the EPP engineered media with filtration called EcoTank system, provided control of water quality. Under the operating conditions with 0.55 hours hydraulic retention time(HRT) and a capable of treating a maximum road runoff 9.5 m3/h, the mean residual Cd, Cr, Cu, Pb and Zn were 0.24, 2.8, 13.4, 11 and 112.3 ㎍/L and corresponding percentage mean removal values were 91, 93, 85, 91 and 80%, respectively. Results suggest that a properly designed PFR can provide effective in situ control for particles and could be combined with or function separately from source control.
