Corio Gross Pollutant Trap

The Corio GPT, (Gross Pollutant Trap), is part of a larger group of works to clean  stormwater before it enters creeks and the bay. The area identified for this particular GPT was the major shopping centre of the region. Various other WSUD treatments were considered  but site characteristics ruled them out.
