According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), about 90 percent of surface pollutants are carried by the first 1-1/2 inch of rainfall.
Independent research has shown that PERCOATM is able to capture and filter 96% – 99% of oil and heavy metal contaminants contained in storm water runoff which is directed over its surface.
A vast majority of surface concrete and asphalt in place today is impervious which contributes to rapid water runoff. Wastewater runoff is one of the leading causes of pollution in our environments and a growing concern with communities all over the world. Water runoff can erode soil, change stream patterns, and cause flooding. Storm water runoff picks up pollutants as it flows across impervious surfaces.
PERCOATM because clean water is a global responsibility
