Managing stormwater pollution in the industrial environment

Effective management of stormwater from industrial sites is critical to maintaining and enhancing the quality of our freshwater and marine environments.

Due to the range of chemicals and products that may be stored on site, including detergents, oil and paint, one spill event from an industrial site could kill an entire stream and take years to rehabilitate it. Even seemingly harmless products such as those labelled “biodegradable” can cause significant environmental damage if allowed to enter our waterways.
