Current Best Management Practice

Runoff protection at the site boundary

  • Not secured to the fence
  • Minimal contact with ground surface
  • Gaps between socks
  • No real filtration capacity

Runoff protection at the drain

  • Flash flooding risk due to the flow of water into the drain being restricted
  • Diverts flow (pollution) elsewhere – the next drain!
  • Trip hazard for workers and public
  • Vehicle hazard
