Filtera Goes In

The Filtera bio-retention unit discussed in yesterday's blog was installed today along with the new man-hole and drain inlets at the Camino Pesc intersection. The Filtera and the man-hole are pre-cast concrete made in a factory and delivered to the site on a tractor trailer ready to place on location using heavy equipment. The Filtera box will be filled with bio-filter media and living landscape to capture and remove pollutants from storm water run-off. The filter media and the landscape element will be installed later, but by the time the next storm arrives Isla Vista will have bio-filtration. For more info on Filtera visit
