Romeoville, Ill.-based stormwater management systems developer StormTrap has entered a licensing and production agreement granting Lafarge Canada exclusive rights to proprietary precast concrete detention and retention products from northwest Ontario to British Columbia. The producer serves drainage markets across that expanse from precast and concrete pipe plants in Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton.

StormTrap structures and components control water volumes and flows leaving a site. The large, underground concrete chambers are engineered to contain water from peak weather events, gradually releasing it at a controlled rate or storing it for irrigation. The systems comply with Canadian surface-loading requirements and are completely modular for customized site needs.

“StormTrap further adds to environmental and sustainable product offerings which support LEED and other green building programs,” says Lafarge Canada Stormwater Specialist Graham Fuga.

The licensing agreement, notes StormTrap Vice President of Sales Shawn Luton, “is perfectly suited to fully leverage the potential of [our] intellectual property and serves as an ideal addition to our partnership with LafargeHolcim.”
