Avoiding any type of man-made contamination into the natural environment is very important for the habitat itself and the animals that live in it.
Construction sites should ensure that efforts are made to monitor and contain hazardous materials and to reduce, or prevent, harmful spills.
Examples of how sites have avoided contamination into the local environment include:
Harmful spills should always be planned for, even when there is no actual fuel, oil or hazardous liquids stored on site. Site managers should always pre-empt that any vehicles or equipment visiting the site could cause an issue.
