Bayside Council Officers will be putting local construction sites under a compliance microscope in May when the Get The Site Right campaign kicks off.
“Bayside Council participates in this campaign every year to ensure building and construction sites across Bayside have sediment runoff controls in place to help protect our valuable waterways,” Mayor Dr Christina Curry said.
During the campaign Council Officers will inspect construction sites. Builders and developers will be given a chance to rectify any problems and those who do not comply will be fined.
The campaign also helps educate builders and developers on what they can do to help keep sediment runoff from building sites out of our drains and waterways, and ultimately out of Botany Bay.
Members of the public can report pollution incidents relating to poor sediment control to Council via our website.
