Drain Diaper(R) Controls Nonpoint-Source Pollution.

Petro-Marine Company, Inc., has developed a new pollution prevention product that will help companies comply with environmental provisions of the Clean Water Act.

The Curb Inlet Drain Diaper Insert is currently available for storm sewer inlets with open curb sides. Its unique (patent-pending) design incorporates an adjustable support rod that not only protects the curb inlet from stormwater containing sediments, oil, and debris, but also provides a 2- to 3-inch barrier on the open curb side to prevent debris from falling into the catch basin from the street side. This spring-loaded rod suspends the Drain Diaper in place without relying on the weight of the grate. The insert is available with multiple rods, so it will fit any curb inlet design.

Drain Diaper products have been successfully used by maintenance shops, industrial facilities, parking lots, marinas, ports, shipyards, car washes, shopping malls, truck stops, service stations, airports, and rail yards. The curb inlet and the catch basin Drain Diaper inserts are a cost-effective way to avoid contaminating our water supplies and to meet best-management-practice requirements of the Clean Water Act.
