Hamilton Port Authority reduces its dust emissions

Green Marine also encourages environmental initiatives such as those undertaken by the Hamilton Port Authority this past summer, which involved paving jetty number 15 and installing a grease and grit interceptor at the site. As a result of this effort, a formerly dusty gravel lot populated with old warehouses has now been fully paved and graded, and fitted with a grease and grit interceptor through which storm water can flow. Given the size of the site, the unit has a diameter of eight feet and a depth of over 12 feet! An annual maintenance program will ensure that the unit functions properly for many years to come. Both the paving and the interceptor uni  will improve water protection at Hamilton Harbour and reduce the amount of dust created by truck traffic at the port.
