Listed within the Full Trash Capture Certification Program by both the Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Boards, our Connector Pipe Screen (CPS) has become the BMP of choice for cities as they strive to meet rigorous storm water regulations. This metal screen assembly is installed inside a catch basin, in front of the outlet pipe, for preventing debris from entering the storm drain system. A CPS unit is designed to retain all trash and gross solids larger than 5 mm (0.197 in) inside the catch basin (e.g. cigarette buds), and once in place it also retains large volumes of sediment as well. Therefore, the trash capture and storage capacity of this product is dependent upon the size of the catch basin where it is to be installed. A CPS unit can be used in conjunction with a curb inlet screen cover and/or DrainPac™ Storm Drain Filter Insert for added effectiveness based on the level of trash and debris that commonly accumulates at the site.
New installation with gauge painted on catch basin wall so that crew inspecting drains know when the basin requires cleaning or maintenance.
