"This project aims to solve the problem of trash accumulating in our Tucson washes because rain storms wash the trash into the wash. The student created a net system that traps and collects the trash from the storm drain, and created a model to test two different types of trash as water flowed through their prototype. "

One thought on “Water Wash Trash Net

  1. Great idea and you identified the limitations. Maybe we could pay some people to go and collect the trash after a rain. Or get a volunteer network to do it.
