Stormwater Filtration Device
Organized by: Andrew Huang
Event Name: Keep Supporting CGI U Commitments
We are a team of engineering students committed to designing, building, and implementing storm-water filtration devices at the University of California, San Diego. Based on data collected by the Environmental, Health, & Safety (EH&S) Office, the land water collected in our sewers at the Campus Services Complex carry harmful oils, heavy metals, and suspended solids that flow out to the Pacific Ocean, Los Penesquitos Creek, and Rose Canyon Creek. San Diego is well known for its marine life and biodiversity. Our CGI U Commitment to Action is to significantly reduce the damage by implementing an innovative filtration device utilizing natural volcanic rock and algae-based absorbent material.
