Erosion and sediment

EIAs generally include a large number of mitigation measures that may result in minimal reduction in environmental impact but have significant cost implications

Erosion and sediment control is often the single most important issue for construction projects. Erosion and Sediment Control Plan(s) (ESCP) are important documents for site-based erosion and sediment control as they provide relevant and specific information to those responsible for erosion and sediment management. These documents are increasingly becoming a requirement including the approval of the plan by a Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC).   

We have experience in providing detailed (but practical) ESCP to manage erosion and sediment during the construction phase of the development. These plans can be certified to meet the International Erosion Control Association (IECA) framework. Our objective is to save the project proponent resources through the provision of practical documents that integrate and align with the construction program. We also can provide relevant tools associated with the ESCP including design information of controls and management of sediment basins (if required), weekly and/or monthly inspections forms etc. In addition, environmental monitoring assistance including management of sediment basins, routine inspections, during and post rain inspections and other advice regarding the implementation of the ESCP can be provided.    

Our services include:

  • CPESC advice

  • Erosion and Sediment Control Plans (ESCPs)

  • Soil surveys

  • Erosion and sediment control inspections

  • Erosion and sediment control audits

  • Water quality monitoring

  • TSS to NTU correlation
