Control of water pollution from linear construction projects. Technical guidance (C648)

This guidance addresses the control of water pollution throughout the whole project cycle, from the design of a scheme, through to construction and commissioning. It also highlights issues encountered on upgrades and on-line replacement, and sets out generic best practice and procedures for controlling water pollution from construction sites in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Included are regional legislative and regulatory variations and anyone intending to implement the practices and procedures set out in this guidance should ensure the work complies with these relevant regional variations. This guidance provides best practice advice and is intended to supplement any contractual requirements, consultation with regulators or company procedures rather than replace them.

Keywords: water quality, pollution prevention, rivers and waterways, environmental good practice, site management, construction management.
