Development sites with active construction activity generate significant sediment that can harm the downstream environment.  Similarly disturbance to the existing landform can create flow path for high velocity overland flow that can cause erosion and generate sediment.

An appropriate Erosion and Sediment Control Plan (ESCP) is required for construction sites.  This may also require diversion of existing channels/flow paths away from the construction site.  We can assist our clients in:

  • Preparing  a site specific ESCP in line with the relevant standards (Blue Book from NSW LandCom)
  • Advise on improvement of poorly designed existing measures by undertaking hydrological analysis
  • Design diversion channels for the construction sites
  • Periodic site supervision to ensure compliance of ESCP
  • Liaison with Council or other authorities
