Why was this paper selected as the Editor's Choice?

"Heavy metals remain an issue of major concern in the management of urban stormwater drainage. The authors of this article have proposed a treatment methodology based on electrolysis aimed at removing these heavy metals from the waste stream. Presented in the article is a sound methodological investigation of the problem and a clear presentation of the results obtained. I commend to the readers of WST this article on heavy metal removal from a urban drainage stream."
