Gross Pollutants make up the first category of pollutants in the Treatment Train .
What Do Gross Pollutants Consist Of?
Gross Pollutants are anything larger than sediment and can consist of anything from shopping trolleys and truck tyres to cigarette butts and plastic bags . They can be organic or non-organic . This is an important fact as captured organic material like leaf drop in high concentrations, (particularly deciduous trees and bushes which exceed pre-development quantities) is not really compatible with the Australian wildlife in our streams and rivers when it starts to break down. This is a contributor to such problems as alga blooms and other such problems.
How Do Baramy Treat Gross Pollutants?
Baramy treat Gross Pollutants by separating the pollutants from the water flow into containment bays where they can drain to a dry state . We have adopted this philosophy as the separated Dry Rubbish does not leach nutrients back into the waterways.
