Bob's Metals - Industrial Stormwater

Since 1983, Bob’s Metals has served industrial, manufacturing and service industries throughout Oregon and Washington. The company’s main yard in Portland, OR sits on 5.2 acres of impervious surface area and is located adjacent to the Columbia River Slough. As a second-generation, family-owned business, Bob’s Metals was looking for a cost-effective, long-term solution for their stormwater treatment needs. WaterTectonics designed and installed a 300gpm WaveIonics electrocoagulation treatment system that included electrocoagulation, pH management, and media filtration to meet defined stormwater discharge benchmarks.
