John Deming

After responding to a chemical spill where thousands of gallons of polluted water entered a storm drain and contaminated a nearby creek, John developed and patented the first ever control-valve storm drain insert — the Safe Drain — in 1990. Since then, John has dedicated his life to building and perfecting products that protect the environment and meet EPA and SPCC requirements (e.g., BAT, BMP, MEP).
