Townsville City Council crews will be out today and tomorrow using an environmentally friendly spray to reduce smells from waterways, stormwater drains and silted streets.

Areas in Idalia, Rosslea and Annandale will be prioritised. Council crews will continue to assess flood-affected areas and will move the spray truck to other areas as required.

The spray is environmentally friendly and uses beneficial microbes to suppress odour, improve water quality and reduce the risk of algal blooms.

The microbes work by accelerating natural processes to break down pollutants into harmless natural compounds and reduce odour.

 

Trayeden is only 15 but wanted to give back to all the people devastated by the floods!
