The Barracuda is a high-performance vortex hydrodynamic separator designed to remove suspended solids in order to protect the public waterways from pollutants of concern.

Named for its “teeth”, a revolutionary design feature, the Barracuda system mitigates turbulence in the sump area to prevent resuspension of captured contaminants. The apparatus is fabricated and designed for quick and easy field assembly. Plus, it’s easy to maintain using a vacuum truck or comparable equipment.

The Barracuda is an inline stormwater treatment unit capable of conveying 100% of the design peak flow and built to remove at least 80% of the suspended solids on an annual aggregate removal basis.
