SDS published in WWT
An article on surface water runoff quality, written by SDS Marketing Development Manager, Jo Bradley, has been printed in the September issue of ‘Waste & Wastewater’ (‘WWT’) magazine (Volume 60, Issue 9).
The article focusses in particular on the quality of water runoff from highways and outlines solutions to deal with this increasingly significant problem.
Pollution from urban highways, trunk roads and motorways poses significant risks to the environment from toxic metals and hydrocarbons that are carried in surface water runoff. The risks are well-documented and the regulatory tools are in place, yet outfalls are inconsistently monitored and controlled. In her article Jo looks at the tools and techniques available to tackle the problem.

Prior to joining SDS, Jo spent 25 years at the Environment Agency working on all aspects of pollution control, urban design and road runoff. She believes passionately in protecting the water environment from pollution, and is well-regarded for her knowledge and expertise in highway runoff.
