Stormwater Management System
Custom Plastic Fabrications, LLC. (CPF) is proud to partner with civil engineers and stormwater management companies. Whether you are looking for a custom stormwater management system component or a stormwater tank, CPF will manufacture to your specifications. Together, we can design and create environmentally-friendly alternative solutions to replace fiberglass, steel, and concrete stormwater tanks, liners, and components for your stormwater management system.
GROUNDWATER BARRIER AND HYDRODYNAMIC SEPARATOR
As a result of working with stormwater management companies and their designs, CPF has manufactured hydrodynamic devices for stormwater detention, such as a groundwater barrier and a hydrodynamic separator. A groundwater barrier prevents contaminants from entering the environment and groundwater sources. The primary purpose of a hydrodynamic separator is to remove sediments and pollutants. Hydrodynamic separators are flow-through structures that include a sediment settling or separation unit. For treating and pretreating stormwater runoff, hydrodynamic separators are an effective best management practice (BMP).
CUSTOM STORMWATER AND RAINWATER COLLECTION TANKS
In addition to stormwater management system components, CPF offers custom stormwater and rainwater collection tanks. These custom tanks can be above or below ground. Tank sizes range from 500 – to 10,000 gallons. Modular designs are available for tanks greater than 10,000 gallons. As rainwater management regulations become more prevalent in the United States, CPF can be part of an engineered solution to your project.

WHAT ARE STORMWATER MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS?
A stormwater management system’s primary function is to retain stormwater and remove pollutants before discharging water to the environment. Stormwater systems manage runoff from rainfall or snowfall. As our world became more advanced with roads and parking lots, and other impervious surfaces, it became difficult to allow for natural stormwater runoff. Manufactured stormwater systems mimic biological processes and come in various shapes, sizes, and configurations.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), stormwater management is the effort to reduce rainwater or melted snow runoff into streets, lawns, and other sites, improving domestic water quality.
When stormwater soaks into the soil, it is filtered and flows into streams, rivers, lakes, and wetlands. However, the wet ground from heavy rain, creates excess water that runs into storm sewers and road ditches. This water often carries debris and pollutants.
Pavement and roofs prevent precipitation from naturally penetrating the ground in developed areas. Water instead runs rapidly into storm drains, sewer systems, and drainage ditches, resulting in:
- Overflow to storm and sewer systems
- Damage to infrastructure
- Flooding downstream
- Destruction to habitats
- Erosion of stream banks
- Stirred up sediment
- Streams, rivers, lakes, wetlands, and coastal water contamination
Surface water runoff, or stormwater, and any sewer inflow, or sewer infiltration, becomes part of a municipal wastewater process. To read more about CPF’s wastewater products click here.

Why Custom Fabrication of Your Stormwater Management System Component?
CPF allows you to design any size, shape, and other preferences you may have for your stormwater management system polytank or component. As well, our engineers and designers can work with you to create a design that will ensure the success of your next stormwater management system project. All tanks and components are designed to meet your specific requirements. To avoid material waste, engineers design their products to keep scrap to a minimum. We will begin manufacturing your hydrodynamic separator component, groundwater barrier, or stormwater tank once you approve the drawing.
Additionally, outsourcing to us will help you free up manpower and floor space if you are still building your own tanks. Due to the high cost of labor, this will allow you to concentrate on your core business. Polytanks are also more economical than stainless steel tanks. Here are a few more reasons why a poly stormwater management system components should be custom fabricated with CPF:
