Preventing sediment loss

September 29, 2019

The Sediment Task Force has developed a guide for West Australian builders, building sub-contractors, site supervisors, tradespersons and project managers to assist in reducing sediment loss from sites. 

The checklist can be used when arriving at and leaving your site, for regular checks of sites and vacant blocks, and before and after a rain, wind or storm event.

Sediment leaving a site can present an environmental risk and can carry fines in some local government areas. 

Head to the PerthNRM website to download the on-site builder’s checklist for preventing sediment or for more information.
