City of Carrollton, Texas Installs StormX Netting Trash Trap
The city of Carrollton, Texas installed a StormX Netting Trash Trap at an outfall by Josey Ranch Lake. The specific unit installed is an 84″ StormX Half Pipe with a 48″ reducer with net.
The city of Carrollton, Texas has made the most out of the StormX unit by installing an informative sign next to the device to inform the public about the purpose of this unique device. The sign reads, “The purpose of this device is to capture and prevent floating solids, trash and debris from entering the Josey Ranch Lake through the storm drainage system.” By taking full advantage of the high visibility of the StormX, the city of Carrollton, Texas is hoping to increase public awareness about the problem of trash in our stormwater.
The Josey Ranch Lake (seen to the right) is a natural treasure to the city of Carrollton, full of catfish, much to the public’s delight. The Josey Ranch Lake Public Library is nearby and residents will be able to read the sign and learn more about the detrimental effects of littering. The StormX prevents floating litter and debris from destroying this beautiful, natural scene.
