Bioslope Media Mixture is the specialized media used for filtration within a BMP called a bioslope. Bioslopes are a longitudinal slope that typically run parallel with a highway, airport runway, or parking lot to capture and treat runoff from a site. A filter strip, usually grassed between the pavement or impervious surface usually separates it from the bioslope to reduce flow and filter the runoff. Pollutant removal includes total suspended solids (TSS), metals (cadmium, copper, lead, zinc), nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus), and pathogens (fecal coliform). Bioslopes also reduce runoff volume, and therefore provide channel and flood protection for streams in the watershed.
The bioslope soil mix overlays an underdrain system. It is at a minimum depth of 12”. The Bioslope Media Mixture is a blend of crushed rock, dolomite, gypsum, and perlite. The initial infiltration rate of this mixture is 50+ in/hr and will reduce as it filters water over time. The primary component is the gravel with the perlite being the secondary component. Dolomite and gypsum are blended based on the amount of perlite by the pound (lb). All the materials must achieve the specified gradation and by free of any toxic materials (horticultural grade).
