The nutrient-separating baffle box is a structural Best Management Practice used for stormwater quality treatment. It removes leaves, trash, sand and their associated contents of nitrogen and phosphorus from receiving waters. The nutrient-separating baffle box incorporates an aluminum screen basket with a horizontal bottom at an elevation below the water flow level of the pipe but just above the top of the baffles, which are attached to the bottom of the box.
HOW IT WORKS
Incoming flow passes through the screen basket, which captures leaves, trash, and other large materials and prevents them from entering the Indian River Lagoon. The baffles separate the sediment (soil, sand, muck) from the incoming flow and captures them in three chambers located at the bottom of the box. The baffle box features a floating skimmer with a filter boom, which prevents any floating debris from exiting the box during periods of heavy rain storms and absorbs any chemicals or petroleum base products that enter the stormwater system.
