Control of water pollution from linear construction projects, a new publication from CIRIA, (C648), provides specic guidance to clients, consultants, designers and contractors on how to plan and manage water pollution from linear projects, e. g. railway, road or pipeline construction. It outlines the characteristics of linear construction projects, provides an understanding of water pollution and covers the project lifecycle from planning, early environmental assessments and design considerations for the construction phase, through to commissioning. The focus is on the prevention of contamination of watercourses, essentially to improve the environmental performance of linear construction projects. Although the guidance is of particular relevance to those working on linear construction projects, the principles can also be applied to most construction sites.
