Retention elements

Installing floater and solid-waste retention systems at the sewerage network’s discharge points helps to reduce the pollution load that reaches the natural receiving environment.

In Barcelona’s case, all the discharging points along the receiving environment have satellite systems capable of retaining floaters and other solid waste, thereby preventing their leakage into the natural environment during rainfall.
