This erosion and sediment control toolbox is to help everyone involved with any kind of earthworks on the land or near water—projects large and small. You might be a developer or contractor carrying out a project, or have a creek running through your property, or work in local government… the same principles apply and have to be acted on in the same way.
This is a practical resource, full of photos, diagrams and checklists. The techniques described here work – you just need to apply them to get the results you need and to avoid penalties.
We’ve all learned in Canterbury that there are some things we can’t ‘control’ about our land. Acting with kaitiakitanga (stewardship) for our land and water is something we can control. Environment Canterbury is proud to present this toolbox to help all of us make a real difference for the present and future of our environment.
