The How-To of Gross Pollutant Traps: Stormwater Design Choices & Pollution Control

About the Webinar

As the cornerstone of Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD), Gross pollutant traps (GPTs) are primary treatment devices. These vital frontline defenders protect our waterways from debris, plastic rubbish and other bulky pollutants. They prevent many pollutants from entering our pristine waterways – such as cigarette butts, bottles, garden waste and litter.

In this webinar, Andrew Buggins (Field Sales Engineer) and Kurt Jensen (Team Leader) examine key design parameters when implementing systems to capture gross pollutants. There is a diverse range of GPTs available, which can be designed to meet different budgets, project constraints, flow rates, pollution volumes, and design requirements. These versatile systems can be designed and engineered to meet a wide variety of environmental compliance and water quality obligations. We present an overview of the GPT family, and case studies that show how these varying solutions can be implemented. These systems can be configured to ensure pollution removal is tailored for your site needs and environmental requirements.
