Up-Flo® Filter TAPE Certified for GULD

Up-Flo® Filter has been certified by the Washington State TAPE to remove TSS and phosphorus. 

Performance monitoring of Up-Flo® Filter has been reviewed and certified by the Washington State Technology Assessment Protocol - Ecology, (TAPE) for General Use Level Designation (GULD) to remove Total Suspended Solids and phosphorus from stormwater. 

The initial Up-Flo® Filter was developed in 2006 in collaboration with the US Environmental Protection Agency and has since been modified to include the most effective media types to address region-specific regulatory requirements.

“We match the media to the regulatory objective” said Jeremy Fink, Senior Product Development Engineer with Hydro International. “As a result, the Up-Flo® Filter product line has been through more regulatory, field and lab testing than likely any stormwater filter on the market”.

Versions of Up-Flo® Filter have been approved, certified, accepted and verified by the most stringent testing or regulatory bodies in North America, including but not limited to:

  • NJCAT - New Jersey Corporation for Advanced Technology
  • NJDEP - New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, (NJDEP)
  • Florida Department of Environmental Protection
  • Virginia Department of Environmental Quality
  • Georgia Technology Assessment Protocol
  • Harris County Texas
  • California Water Boards
  • Washington State Technology Assessment Protocol - Ecology (TAPE)

Up-Flo® Filter has over a thousand installations across the United States and Canada, with the bulk of them currently on the East Coast. “TAPE  certification means extending a high-performance filter to West Coast engineers” said Dave Scott, Technical Product Manager. “Having a filter option that uses less operating head and less drop will save site space and give designers more flexibility.”
