Mackley Employees Receive Specialist Training on Silt Management

Mackley employees working on two Team Van Oord sites in West Sussex have received specialist training on silt management, one of the leading causes of pollution generated at construction sites.

The training was delivered by the specialist consultancy Frog Environmental to teams working on the Clay’s Lake and Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls schemes.

Organised by Project Manager Terry Gretton and Environmental Advisor Barry Garvin, the training covered the legal requirements associated with the management of silt on construction sites, and included a number of case studies covering silt pollution incidents in the UK.

The training session also focused on correct on-site planning to reduce the risk of silt run-off, mitigation to reduce silt pollution and monitoring requirements during water filtration/treatment.

It also covered techniques to manage silt disturbance in marine and tidal environments during piling or other ground intrusive works, including dredging.
