Water management system
EPIC Chamber System by Firestone Building Products is a water management and reuse system.
The EPIC Chamber System is an on-site water management and reuse system designed to collect, filter, retain, and distribute water below ground at the source. Combining passive subsurface irrigation, water storage, and filtration into a single, customizable solution, the EPIC Chamber System uses capillary rise and gravity to manage and direct water resources. It’s an ideal solution to control the discharge of stormwater runoff from roads, parking lots, roofs, and other hardscapes. Benefits of the EPIC Chamber System include the ability to recycle gray water on-site for subsurface irrigation. It can also minimize the amount of pollutants entering the groundwater as well as decrease the reliance for municipal water supplies, and eliminates the need for open retention ponds.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
