Tempest® Inlet Control Devices

Tempest® Inlet Control Devices are used to control flow into storm sewers during peak flow events.

  • Conserves sewer system capacity
  • System accommodates low to high flows
  • Integrated odour and floatable control

 

Tempest is a family of cost-effective inlet control devices that work together across a series of catch basins to limit the amount of storm water runoff that can enter a combined sewer system during a storm event. Basement backups and sewer overflows are avoided because storm water surcharges are controlled at the sewer inlet and are allowed to remain in catch basins or temporarily above ground.

CASE STUDIES

A Wise Choice Made 30 Years Ago

In the early 1980s, decision makers in charge of the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion infrastructures had a sense of vision and made a responsible choice for the lasting benefit of the tax payers. A vision that would ensure durable infrastructures for over 30 years. The technical services, in cooperation with the public works department, decided a major shift for products to be used in potable water distribution applications. Since then PVC has become ``The Material of Choice`` made by the City to meet the overall needs, taking into account the existing soil conditions throughout the territory.
