Discharging Excess Water to a Nearby Lagoon

A site should always be aware of its impact to the natural environment in order to protect local habitats and resources.

It is key to identify the environmental impacts caused by a site so the necessary methods can be implemented, this will help manage and avoid any potential damage to surrounding habitats and reduce water pollution.

You will find an example of how a site identified an environmental issue and resolved it below:

  • On site running sand caused heavy silting of water that obstructed the progress of the foundation building;
  • An innovative solution was engineered using a 600m perforated pipe wrapped in geotextile membrane, this was then placed within the excavation and further layered with stone;
  • This provided a managed discharge course for the excess water which was then displaced to a nearby lagoon.
