Construction Site Runoff

Poorly planned and implemented development can pollute waterbodies by allowing exposed sediment to be washed off by rainfall events; choking wildlife and degrading water quality.

What to do:

Take pictures to document evidence if possible

Do not trespass onto the site.

Note any sediment leaving a construction site onto roads etc.

Note areas of a site where severe erosion is occurring.

Note any damage or poorly maintained structures such as silt fences, which are supposed to be controlling sediment.

Record any changes the sediment has had on nearby waterways.
