The catch basin is 99% environmentally green. There is little or no impact on sea-life since the catch basin has a grate on top which prevents entry of any thing larger than 2 inches. Also, the sand is removed from the bottom of the basin by gravity (and a small amount of centrifugal force). Therefore there is not enough suction to pull anything “into” the system.

We do not feel the benthic organisms would be impacted since there is constant movement in the area where the catch basin would be installed from sand and currents. The benthic organisms prefer a deeper, more stable environment.
