You get the most storage volume per area when you use an RTank® underground storage system.
Stormwater runoff volume control is an essential part of any development, particularly in areas where combined sewer overflows (CSO’s) are present. Site Supply offers all the necessary stormwater products to help your construction project manage stormwater. Corrugated Metal Pipes (CMP’s) and High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipes are industry standby’s, because they are strong, durable, and are available in small and larger diameters. These pipes can easily be fabricated into pipe manifolds that can collect and detain large volumes of stormwater, perfect for underground storage detention. Additionally, Site Supply offer the versatile and efficient RTank® system for stormwater detention, which provide up to 94% void space ratio!
So why, you ask, would you want to store your stormwater runoff underground versus in a traditional above ground pond? Well think about it, how valuable is the land that is needed for an above ground pond? If you could build additional parking or even an additional building structure on the land gained by eliminating an above ground pond, by incorporating a below ground detention system, how much money could be generated by the additional asset? When you think about it like that, storing and detaining stormwater under parking lots, or even building structures, in storm detention systems like RTank® becomes a no-brainer decision!
Even better, the open celles of RTank® allow stormwater to infiltrate, and the RTank® units can act as either a channel or a storage chamber. Geotextile fabrics and impermeable membranes are utilized with RTank® systems to create the exact condition you design. And one more benefit, RTank® can easily be used for rainwater harvesting, through the design and addition of special pumps and tubing!
RTank® stormwater systems provide underground storage of stormwater. After a rain event fills the R-Tank® , stormwater can flow into the drainage system, infiltrate into the ground, or be reused. The system is an alternative to stormwater basins and a more efficient, space saving alternative to other underground systems for detention, infiltration, and recycling Stormwater.
R-Tank® is a modular system and can be assembled to a variety of heights from 2” to just under 7’. This rigid system can be placed beneath a variety of surfaces including: Parking Lots, Streets and Access Roads, Driveways, Landscaping, Athletic Fields/Playgrounds, Swales and Channels.
