Water specialists are on the hunt for recruits

Water management specialist Siltbuster is calling on construction professionals to register for its CPD (continuing professional development) accredited training courses

Siltbuster’s two day ‘Practical Guide to Managing Water Pollution on Construction Sites’ course tackles a broad range of topics, including latest environmental legislation, planning to prevent pollution and water treatment advice and technologies.


There are practical demonstrations of silt management, and interactive discussion amongst delegates.

The course is presented by Jonathan Goldsmith, an expert on silt management and water pollution prevention within the construction and environmental remediation industries. Aimed at helping construction professionals manage pollution and dirty water problems cost-effectively and sustainably, the course is targeted at contractors, site managers, project engineers, graduate engineers and environmental managers, co-ordinators and advisors. All delegates will receive a CPD certificate of attendance.


Courses have already taken place in London, Manchester, Exeter and Newcastle. Places are still available on the forthcoming Cardiff, Newmarket, Glasgow, Newbury, Birmingham and Bournemouth courses.These will run from September to February 2011. Siltbuster managing director Richard Coulton says: “Our aim with the CPD course is to equip delegates with the knowledge and confidence to return to their own construction sites armed with the latest in water pollution prevention advice. They will then be in a better position to make informed decisions on water treatment strategies.”
