Sludge!


Much of Adelaide's storm water flows along the Sturt Creek (a concrete drain). In the past this flowed into the Patawalonga and out to sea. A diversion has been made, the Barcoo Outlet, and much of the heavy polluted material is contained in a pond. From time to time this deposited sludge is scooped up and transported away.

This must be a mammouth task.

Sounds like a job I wouldn't enjoy :-)

Gordon, thanks for listening to the show! Do make your presence known next time so I can greet you on air ;-)

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. Have a great week ahead!
