Brown muddy stormwater in Broadway

Brown mud in grate from Fraser's building site, Broadway

On Saturday, yesterday, I took a photo of brown muddy water in the stormwater grate on the southern side of Broadway at the intersection with Abercrombie.  The pollution was from the rain last week.

Now the stormwater from the Fraser’s site has been piped underground along the footpath to discharge into the grate below ground we will no longer see this pollution when it happens.  From here the stormwater runs into Blackwattle Bay beside the Fish Markets where it pollutes Sydney Harbour.

Meanwhile, in the soon to be opened sales office about 100 metres from the pollution further up Broadway, it’s terrific to see the vertical garden inside the new building.

This is one site with two stories.
