Litter on the street is often dumped into waterways without any treatment whatsoever. The debris/pollution also cause street flooding when stormwater drainage pipes clog with debris. SOP Technologies' stormwater filter will be installed at this location to prevent these issues, while also reducing the city's cost to clean up the litter.
