Water Quality Monitoring and Improvement

Storage for water

Created at: 18 Apr 2022


A small ditch along the M90 motorway at the Kinross junction in Fife is filled up with lave. The run off of the road is filtered by the lava. The lava has an estimated saturation time of five years. Then the lava is sucked-up by a machine and replaced by fresh new lava.
