As a developer or builder, you have a legal obligation to take all reasonable care to prevent soil erosion and sediment loss from construction sites.
Soil erosion from construction sites causes major environmental problems in surrounding waterways. Sediment washed into waterways impacts the health of aquatic wildlife and blocks stormwater drains, increasing the risk of flood.
This is where Vidgil Silt Fencing can help. We offer a broad range of affordable erosion control products to ensure your site is up to standard.
We supply and install:
Every worksite is different and any erosion control requirements should be assessed on a site-by-site basis. At Vidgil Silt Fencing, we assess the soil and site conditions to identify instability and determine a site-specific and cost-effective solution.

As well as installing the necessary control measures, there are some other things you can do to minimise erosion at your worksite.
Establish a single, stabilised entry point.
Leave as much vegetation as possible to filter run-off from the site.
Divert uphill water around the building site with stabilised banks and channels.
Stabilise and revegetate disturbed areas as soon as possible.
Check erosion controls regularly, especially before rain is expected and after rain.
