To protect our precious waterways and marine life from untreated stormwater run-off, we must implement processes and utilise products that can prevent gross pollutants from entering the water. These pollutants include plastics, rubbish, litter, grit, sediment, oils, etc. Gross Pollutant Traps provide a solution to reduce these pollutants reaching our waterways.
Gross Pollutant Traps (commonly known as GPT’s) are a key part of the stormwater treatment process in many development and redevelopment areas. Stormwater treatment seeks to achieve real, impactful, and sustainable improvements in water quality.
These products are often being required as a part of the Environment Protection Act 1993. Local councils should be contacted before installing to confirm any regulations for that area.
Selecting a Gross Pollutant Trap
Choosing a Gross Pollutant Trap can be a confusing journey, due to the many available types in the market and the level of maintenance that is required for the various models.
Different types of GPT’s typically include the following categories – specific gravity traps, direct screening, vortex style devices, and a combination of vortex and non-blocking screening systems.
