FocalPoint Biofiltration System

Bioretention Pond Alternative

FocalPoint High Performance Modular Biofiltration System (HPMBS) utilizes physical, chemical, and biological mechanisms of plants, soil, and microbes to remove pollutants typically found in urban stormwater runoff. Compared to traditional bioretention systems, the efficiency of the FocalPoint High Performance Media makes the system more than 30 times smaller per acre treated, which allows for more usable square footage on a project. FocalPoint’s next-generation biofiltration media is the key to its high performance. FocalPoint standard media has infiltration flow rates that exceed 100” per hour. Reliable, high-performance biofiltration enables reduced footprints, factors of safety, new application options, and lower installation and maintenance costs. More than 600 FocalPoint systems have been successfully installed across the United States.

FocalPoint is a scalable biofiltration system that combines the efficiency of high flow rate engineered soils with the durability and modularity of a highly pervious open cell underdrain/storage/infiltration system. At the heart of every FocalPoint HPMBS is its high-performance engineered soil blend. This advanced technology provides high flow rates and pollutant removal rates for common stormwater contaminants. FocalPoint’s high-flow media is resistant to clogging and requires minimal maintenance. Additionally, the FocalPoint system can be modified for enhanced performance on certain targeted pollutants.

FocalPoint can also be paired with a modular underdrain to maximize stormwater storage and infiltration. FocalPoint’s modular underdrain, unlike a traditional underdrain, not only supports the flow rate of the media, but can be expanded beyond the footprint of the media bed to provide unlimited underground detention, infiltration, and/or storage for water reuse/infiltration.

FocalPoint has been approved by various municipalities, cities, and states throughout the country!

Benefits of FocalPoint:
  • Flows at 100 in/hr
  • Reduce footprints and infrastructure costs
  • Minimize overall maintenance cost
  • Designers have maximum flexibility in meeting both water quality and water volume requirements
  • Flows faster with age as the root system grows
  • Resistant to clogging
  • Detention, infiltration, and/or rainwater harvesting
  • Post-installation verification to guarantee performance
  • First year’s maintenance included
