Sediment Control

Most councils have requirements for the control and management of soil erosion and can issue on the spot fines if they find a builders in breach of these requirements. Ask your council for information if you are unsure of their requirements.

The objectives of sediment control are:

  • To divert uncontaminated water away from the site
  • To minimize erosion caused by site disturbance, stabilsing disturbed surfaces and securing material stockpiles.
  • To prevent sediment contaminated water leaving the site.

The requirement for sediment control can be influenced by such things as:

    • Soil type. Clay soils are more likely to cause environmental harm, while sandy soils are more likely to cause traffic hazards and drainage problems.
    • Slope. The steeper and longer the slope, the greater the potential for erosion and sedimentation.
    • Extent of the soil disturbance. The greater the disturbance, the greater the risk of erosion and sedimentation.
    • Climate and season. Rainfall (intensity and duration) and sometimes high winds can influence erosion and sedimentation.
    • Size and location of the site. Sediment control on small sites is often harder to implement, especially if the slope is towards the street.
