What the storms brought in

Today we* investigated the raingardens in Dow St and the various tide lines to see what last week's storm had brought in - a predictable trail of packaging and fragments of plastic. The raingardens trap small items of litter such as all these cigarette butts so they don't ever get to the beach. The difference on the beach between those stormwater outlets with and without the raingarden treatment was very obvious. [* that was me and other 3207 Beach Patrollers]
