Typically Water Sensitive Urban Design focuses on just four main pollutants i.e. Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Sediment and Litter. There are however many more pollutants that can harm our waterways. Meet the Pollutants is a new education campaign aims to introduce to a younger audience a few of the more sinister characters we need to combat to protect our precious waterways. Our new website is coming soon meetthepollutants.com
