​A new pollution trap has been installed at Montgomery Reserve, Revesby, following an audit undertaken in Canterbury-Bankstown.
Mayor Asfour said there are now 73 of these traps that act as pollution control devices.
“This spot was identified as requiring the installation of a waterway protection device, to act as a filter for stormwater before it enters our waterways,” he said.
“It will collect oil, organic matter and sediment, and other larger waste, like floating bottles, cans, rubbish, plastic bags and clothing.”
A total 296.5 tonne of waste was collected by gross pollution control devices across the City last year.
“This about protecting our waterways, mostly from people who fail to do the right thing,” Mayor Asfour said.
“We need to work together so we all can continue to enjoy our waterways now and into the future.”
Other pollution control devices used in the City’s waterways include, litter booms, trash racks, reed beds, artificial wetlands, lakes, pollution control ponds and oil and grit separators.
Council has partnered with the Cooks River Alliance and Georges Riverkeeper, to develop Coastal Management programs, and is in the process of developing a new Catchment and Waterways Plan.
“This will predominantly look at the state of waterways across the City and develop a road map for future infrastructure needs to address water management issues,” Mayor Asfour said.
In 2018-19, Council is investing $1.7 million in maintaining water quality and its waterways and a further $1.2 million on stormwater drainage. To find out more on what projects have been identified in your area, visit cb.city/projects
