Litter boom data
Council is not the only organisation reducing water pollution. Sydney Water maintains litter booms which trap litter that has entered the river:
two located along the Parramatta River
Dobroyd Canal and
- two others along the Cooks River
in Boat Harbour, Hurlstone Park and
Fifth Avenue in Campsie.
Litter doesn't only enter waterways via stormwater pipes, it can also be washed in from any land near a river. This is why litter booms help. Secondly, councils do not install a GPT on every stormwater outlet because this would be extremely expensive.
Keeping litter off our streets is the first and best step to make our rivers clean.
