Replacement Media

Various Bio Clean products and solutions incorporate unique stormwater media to provide superior treatment. Our biofiltration media – WetlandMEDIA – includes greater plant growth and pollutant removal in the Modular Wetlands System Linear (MWS Linear). The second type is BioMediaGreen, which is a filtration media that comes in inexpensive lightweight cubes and is used in the pretreatment stage of the MWS Linear.


The Modular Wetlands System Linear (MWS Linear) utilizes a proprietary blend of bioretention media that outperforms standard sand filters, bioretention systems and standard subsurface flow wetlands. The Bio Clean WetlandMEDIA provides greater plant growth, moisture retention, evapo-transpiration, and pollutant removal while traditional bioretention media, consisting of compost/ organics and sand, has been known to have negative effects, such as leaching nutrients.

Media Advantages

  • No Organics
  • Removes Phosphorus
  • 48% Void Space
  • Greater Surface Area
  • Maximum Evapo-Transpiration
  • High Ion Exchange Capacity
  • Light Weight


Most systems utilize a granular media that needs to be contained, is heavy in weight and difficult to replace. In contrast, BioMediaGREEN comes in lightweight blocks making it inexpensive to ship and simple to replace. First, it is utilized in the pretreatment stage within the Modular Wetlands System Linear (MWS Linear) pre-filter cartridges. There is over 25 sq.ft. of surface area per cartridge, and the media itself removes over 80% of Total Suspended Solids (TSS) and 90% of hydrocarbons. The pre-filter cartridges also prevent pollutants from migrating to the biofiltration chamber, which prevents clogging. Second, the plant propagation layer of media bedding on the surface of the MWS Linear creates a hearty layer that supports and sustains vegetation.

Media Advantages

  • Made of Various Oxides, Promoting Ion Exchange of Dissolved Pollutants
  • 80% Void Space, Allows Double Contact Time
  • Excellent Physical Filtration & Hydraulic Capacity
  • Perlite Can Also be Used
