Water pollution affects every living being. The plastic bag or bottle that is dropped on the ground today may become the marine debris of tomorrow –harming fish and fragile aquatic ecosystems. Untreated sewage releases, wastewater overflows, stormwater runoff, oil spills, and pharmaceutical pollution can contaminate our drinking water.
To help keep our oceans, inland waterways and groundwater clean, Elastec manufactures and markets innovative water pollution control equipment to help municipalities and industries comply with the federal Clean Water Act.
The 23 ft. ELASTEC Omni Cat is a multi-purpose aluminum work boat designed to skim floating debris in sheltered waters, marinas and harbors. The vessel can also be used for a wide variety of marine maintenance duties.
Elastec manufactures turbidity curtains to control silt and sediment pollution in marine construction, dredging and remediation projects.
Elastec offers portable incinerators such as MediBurn for on-site medical waste management as well as the Drug Terminator for the disposal of evidence and take-back program drugs collected by law enforcement agencies.
There are many financial resources, such as grants, available for municipalities, marinas and harbors for the funding of water pollution control equipment. The following links are a few examples.
