Runoff water treatment

Runoff is the excess water that has failed to infiltrate the soil or evaporate, flowing over the surface of the ground. This water generally consists of rainwater, which runs off the surface of the ground and into watercourses. Water should normally infiltrate the soil, where it will be absorbed by trees and plants, or recharge the groundwater table.

The urbanization of our territory is contributing to an increase in impervious surfaces (road infrastructures, parking lots …). Rainwater that comes into contact with these surfaces is loaded with pollutants and becomes polluted runoff. It contains suspended solids, micro-plastics, hydrocarbons, heavy metals, etc.
It is therefore necessary to treat runoff as close as possible to its point of arrival, before it pollutes our waterways or soil.

How to treat rainwater?

Treating run-off water is crucial to preserving the quality of our water resources. The SIMOP product range offers a variety of solutions to meet this environmental concern.

Hydrocarbon separators are designed specifically to remove hydrocarbons, mainly from petrol stations.

Our hydrodynamic separators are innovative devices capable of trapping numerous solid or liquid pollutants, suspended solids, hydrocarbons, heavy metals…

Finally, our particulate clarifiers are advanced filtration systems that effectively remove pollutants and debris from stormwater. With our range of products, you can contribute to sustainable stormwater management while preserving the environment.

This selection wheel allows you to determine which equipment (hudrodynamic separators, hydrocarbon separator or particulate decanter) would be the most appropriate to install according to the surface area to be treated, the type of pollutant to be treated, its density and concentration:
