What is a Snout?

  • The "SNOUT": a hooded outlet cover that converts any sumped stormwater structure into an oil/ debris/ water separator--an effective, low-cost "Best Management Practice".
  • Attaches to catch basin wall over any type pipe.
  • Models for rectangular and round structures.
  • Contains floatables and oil within the catch basin or structure
  • Installation Kits, flow restrictors, Bio-Skirt and custom debris screens available.
  • A removable water tight clean-out port is standard for easy access to pipe.
  • Anti-siphon flow vent improves hydraulics and prevents contaminants from being drawn downstream.
  • Strong yet light-weight plastic composite construction (marine-grade fiberglass).
  • Very easy to install. Most units can be installed in under one hour.
  • Unaffected by corrosive ice melting chemicals.
  • Low head loss design.
  • Stop up to 95% of floatables while offering significant reductions of free oils and suspended solids.
  • Can be used in series to achieve greater degree of water quality improvement.
