Soil and Erosion

Sand, soil and cement from building sites is a major cause of water pollution. When these materials enter our waterways, it affects aquatic flora and fauna and can block stormwater pipes, leading to increased flooding.

The Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997, enables Council to issue notices and infringements for practices which could cause environmental problems.

If you are a property developer, the Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils can provide further information on how to protect stormwater drains and the installation of sediment controls.
