Gross Pollutant

Gross Pollutant describes the garbage that is collected in stormwater or drainage systems. It can consist of

  • cans
  • cigarette butts
  • bottles ( glass and plastic)
  • plastic bags
  • paper
  • vegetation fragments ( branches, twigs, grass)
  • sediment ( sand, pebbles, rocks)

To prevent these pollutants from entering and blocking the storm water system, they should be intercepted by a gross pollutant trap and removed.
