Jo Bradley, Market Development Manager at SDS, proposes that the Environment Agency Report “The State of the Environment: Water Quality” fails to tackle pollution from urban and highway runoff.

In the article, published in April’s issue of “DrainTRADER” magazine and reproduced here, Jo writes that: “Whilst the Report acknowledges that harmful pollution from urban and transport runoff is a major contributor to water quality failures, no action is demanded to tackle the threat from toxic metals, hydrocarbons and microplastics that are washed into the aquatic environment during heavy storms.”
