This is what a catch basin filter looks like after a few months of use. The box uses a series of graduated sieves to filter out organic and inorganic matter. Grass clippings, sediment, cigarette butts and candy wrappers are just a few of the things that slip through storm grates, but are caught by the filters before rainwater makes its way to a canal. The boxes are emptied of the waste as often as every six months.
