Many thousands of these got washed out of the Westchester County Mamaroneck, NY Wastewater TP in 2011. I still see them occasionally; have you seen any floating or on a beach?

I've seen them on the beach. What the heck are they? Always thought they were part of a shotgun shell....

I was told they are used to scrub out the intakes on the plant.

I believe they are used as a filter medium whereby bacteria grows on them (beneficial bacteria). I use them in a fish tank biological filter that I home built for my 90 gallon freshwater tank.

  We had them at the nearby treatment plant in Rye, NY as well. They filled the base a huge ‘smoke’ type stack that was part of an air scrubber. A constant shower of odor cancelling chemicals rained down on the plastic media as the smelly air passed through. The wagon wheel design provided a huge surface area.

Looks like a great plug tube insert divider for small tins, epoxies and small buckies.

Not really. They are the size of a dime or nickel.
