Western Australian Sediment Management


In order to raise awareness, educate and inspire Local Governments to try and/or embrace new tools and mechanisms to more effectively manage soil erosion, sediment runoff and sand drift, Perth NRM's Sediment Task Force has compiled this case study series Examples of Local Government’s response to erosion resulting from urban development in Perth, WA.

Preventing and controlling soil erosion, sediment runoff and sand drift from building, subdivision and construction sites is also a significant issue for Local Governments (LGs) all across Australia. The environmental and financial impacts are considerable, and have to be managed by Local Governments across Australia in diverse ways to varying levels of success.
