Through laboratory development and applied research it is the mission of HydroLogic Solutions to provide innovative and environmentally sound solutions to storm water management and non-point source pollution problems. We are committed to provide solutions and address future storm water management challenges in a practical and cost effective manner.
StormChamber was developed by biologists, ecologists, and engineers to improve upon existing products in the marketplace currently used in storm water management. We have been in business and selling product under HydroLogic Solutions for over 16 years. The company has several patents and registered trademarks on its products.
StormChamber utilizes basic corrugated arch shape for structural integrity and exceeds the AASHTO/ASTM wheel load rating by over four times. Our system provides greater flexibility in engineering and hydraulic design and enhances water quality as well as our patented “SedimenTrap” product creating the most cost effective storm water system meeting both storage and water quality needs.
StormChamber was designed as an open bottom, high-density polyethylene infiltration chamber BMP which functions in both permeable and non-permeable soils for subsurface retention/detention of storm water runoff. It reduces nutrient and other pollutant loadings by taking advantage of the natural biological and physical properties of the soil, directly comparable to the functions of a septic drain field. It also recharges ground water drinking supplies, while concurrently helping to maintain base flow to streams, wetlands, lakes, and ponds and counter salt-water intrusion.
In order to meet compliance with the EPA Phase II Storm Water and Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) regulations, HydroLogic Solutions has developed the StormChamber and SedimenTrap as a highly cost effective and environmentally sound management tool for the control of storm water runoff, enhancement of water quality, sediment maintenance and control, water reuse, storm water conveyance, and nitrogen, phosphorous, and other pollutant removal, designed to overcome deficiencies of other existing technologies.
“Because we have installed several StormChamber systems, a lot of engineers have asked for advice on competing plastic chambers. We have always recommended the StormChambers. They far exceed the competition on cost and ease and speed of installation.”
“Much less expensive and much quicker and easier to install than the 64″ pipe originally speced for the project.”
“Significantly faster and easier to install than pipe. Significantly less staging room needed and a lot fewer trucks to receive and unload.” (The equivalent of 213 LF of pipe nest on one pallet, 1,913 LF on one truck.)
“We have installed several StormChamber systems because we find them to be a lot less expensive and quicker to install than the competing systems and we can install them in two layers on very confined sites.”
“We were surprised by the ease of use of the system and greatly appreciated support provided. We are already looking forward to building our next StormChamber project!”

“I also like that it can be cleaned by air vacuuming via inspection /cleanout ports instead of using water. Anytime you have to clean something with water, then you have to have a truck that collects the water and the sediments in it. Depending on where you can dump that, it can get much more costly as opposed to going out with a vacuum truck.”

“The choice of StormChambers met the design requirements for strength in such a way that the chambers could be stacked three deep with 30 feet of cover, if needed. Strong enough to sustain the impact of 18-wheelers loaded with steel. They also were 30 percent more cost-effective than other options.”

“It was easy. There were no difficulties once the owner decided on the StormChamber system. The project is holding up to heavy traffic, pump tracks, and cranes.”

"We were amazed by the simplicity of this system and have appreciated the support from the Soleno team during the entire project. We are already looking forward to designing another project using the StormChamber!"
