Every day, thousands of construction workers are hard at work rebuilding Christchurch. But unless these construction activities have proper pollution prevention measures in place, they could be causing real damage to our urban waterways and their ecosystems.
All construction sites should have measures in place to minimise their environmental impact, such as:
Erosion & sediment control plans
Waste management plans
Before you start work on your site, check what measures in place. If no measures are in place, or if you think they are inadequate or wrong, make sure you tell someone. Click on the links below to find out more about how you can prevent waterway pollution on your construction site.
