Bioretention Media

SOILCO Bioretention Media is a sand-based blend with a high hydraulic conductivity, which has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of Water Sensitive Urban Design Principles for storm water treatment.

It allows fast drainage in flash flood situations and assists with the capture of sediment and treatment of pollutants.

Bioretention Media contains a proportion on GO Compost™ to assist in the biological processing of the water being treated. The organic content sustains the microbiology necessary for the treatment of various pollutants, and assists with the support of plant life.
