CSO Screens

Regulations require that combined storm overflows are screened to remove floatables and sanitary solids before the excess flow is released to a water course. The Kusters Water CSO screen is designed with 4 mm mechanically cleaned bar spacings to prevent floatables bypassing the screen and retaining the solids which pass on to the wastewater treatment plant. This low cost, low maintenance CSO screen is a guaranteed solution to pollution of our waterways, rivers, canals, streams, and lakes.
