Salisbury "FLOGARDs" Local Waterways

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - The city of Salisbury is continuing its effort to keep local waterways clean.
Friday, the city announced 14 new "FLOGARD" drain filters have been installed to filter out trash and sediment before they can get to the river.

The City is completing installation of FLOGARD units in key areas and are pleased that we will now have over 100 inlet guards installed.  Due to our prompt payment practices, the City was able to receive a discount on the units and have applied that discount to order replacement filter media.  The inlet guards and media were funded by Community Development Block Grants.  The City will continue to budget for additional inlet guards and replacement media going forward," said Amanda Pollack, Deputy Director of Public Works. 

The FLOGARD filters have been installed to filter out trash and sediment before they can get to the river. Since 2012, 110 inserts have been installed in 50 different locations. Some drains have 2 if not 3 grates and a separate insert is required for each grate due to the weight of the catchable debris and to allow for overflow discharge.
