Erosion and sedimentation
Erosion and sedimentation control measures are implemented to reduce the effects construction activities may have on the environment.
Examples of these control measures are:
- Hydro mulching and native seeding
- Sedimentation basins
- Sediment fencing
- Mulch filtering
- Early completion of permanent control measures.
Yelgun to Chinderah
On the Yelgun to Chinderah project, sandbag and jute mesh sediment controls plus a 'cover crop' were used to reduce the potential for soil erosion
Lyons Road to Englands Road
Catch drainage and diversion drains were used on the Lyons Road to Englands Road upgrade project to reduce the possible erosion of nearby areas
A sediment fence minimises sediment that is carried by water from moving offsite where it could adversely impact adjacent areas.
