Preventing Building Sites Polluting Sydney Waterways

How many building sites do you walk past in your area? It may be quite a few with a multitude of commercial and residential developments across Sydney, but do you ever wonder what the environmental impact of these sites may be when they are not managed properly?

A campaign is currently underway to ensure building sites both big and small do not pollute local waterways. In a bid to educate builders and home renovators to stop run-off from their sites, local councils, the Department of Planning, Industry, and Environment and the NSW Environment Protection Authority are rolling out a campaign this May called –Get The Site Right. 

So, what impact can the building site sentiment have when it ends up in Sydney waterways? Marlene Even from 2SER Breakfast was joined by the NSW Environment Protection Authority -Director of Regulatory Operations James Goodwin to find out.
