Reducing the Impact of Spillages near Watercourses

It is important that constructors ensure that their work is not having a detrimental effect on the natural environment.

Efforts should be constantly sought to protect rivers and streams from pollution, which could be detrimental to the local wildlife.

Below is an example of how a site reduced the impact of potentially dangerous spillages:

  • A new type of boom to capture hydrocarbons should there be a spillage near watercourses was in use on the adjacent waterways using Green Rhino CG1 Polymer Technology;
  • The polymer only reacts with hydrocarbons forming a solid inert waste whilst allowing water to pass through.
