Construction site sediment control and environmental compliance

The Construction industry face many unique environmental challenges. Construction site sediment control, spill control and containment during earth moving or construction operations for example, can prevent silt, sediment and hazardous chemicals migrating to environmentally sensitive areas.

Hydraulic equipment used in construction also has the potential to leak hazardous substances into the surrounding environment and cause pollution.

We recommend a range of silt and sediment, spill control and containment solutions to ensure your organisation protects its environment.

To assist your environmental efforts, we have compiled a list of potential risks facing organisations within your industry and corresponding product solutions and other related material to help you protect your environment.

FAQs – Construction Site Sediment Control and Spill Control

Do you conduct dredging operations in aquatic systems?

Chatoyer Solution

Dredging and excavation operations causes large quantities of silt and sediment to be disrupted in marine environments. This could potentially release contaminants into environmentally sensitive regions of the aquatic system.

Vessels may be carrying stored volumes of fuel, lubricants and oil and should therefore be equipped with suitable spill kits and appropriate storage to contain spilled hazardous liquids.

This situation is a great example of a time where construction site sediment and spill control and containment are required

Do you conduct earth moving or excavation operations?

Chatoyer Solution

During construction operations such as earth moving and excavation, there is a potential risk for silt and sediment to leave the site and migrate to environmentally sensitive areas or run off into the stormwater drain. If excavating in or along side a waterway, turbidity in the waterway will need to be addressed. Here are some construction site sediment control products to assist with environmental compliance during your project.

Do you need to pump out excess water on your site?

Chatoyer Solution

Rain events can leave excess water requiring construction site sediment control. Before discharging the excess water into the stormwater system it must be filtered to meet EPA requirements.
