Meet The Pollutants

Meet The Pollutants

Meet our next pollutant of the week:

Pollutant: herbicide

Source: agriculture, home use

Impacts: atrazine is a problem in ground water, can cause decline in bird populations, causes mutations (sex changes) in frogs and disrupts hormones preventing animals from breeding

One thing you can do: invest in organic weed control methods, take care in scheduling application and keep clear of waterways

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.
