fuels, oils and chemicals shall be surrounded by an impervious bund wall. The volume of the bunded compound shall be at least equivalent to the capacity of the tank or tanks plus 10%. This should constitute general site practice for the prevention of spills. In addition the bunded installation shall be installed in the remotest location possible from rising water and the walls of sufficient height and structural soundness to withstand flood water ingress


debris will be safely contained, reducing the risk of large items entering the flood flow


machinery will be stored or returned to areas of hard standings, preferably remote from flood waters, or where this is not possible, sufficiently constrained so as not to wash away.


43 Where working areas are adjacent to watercourses or cross Flood Zone 2 or 3, the following measures will be implemented:


Spoil storage will be laid out with gaps at regular intervals to minimise impact on flood waters


There shall be no storage of spoil directly on watercourse banks. Where possible, spoil will be set back from watercourses by 5m. This will prevent excessive loading on the watercourse banks and minimise the risk of stored material entering the watercourses.


3.3 44 Site Induction


All EAOW construction projects require personnel working on site to have a site induction that includes an environmental component. Prior to commencing work on site, personnel must attend the site induction. EAOW project EMP guidance expects that site inductions will include reference to compliance with relevant planning/license conditions, Client environmental requirements (including the CoCP), environmental management structure and contacts, site specific environmental sensitivities, waste management arrangements, water and wastewater management, hazardous material management, fuel, oil and chemical management; spill contingency and environmental emergency response, reporting of incidents and complaints.


3.4 45 Screening and Fencing


Site fencing requirements are controlled under Requirement 22, Schedule A, Part 3 of the DCO, which requires details of permanent and temporary fencing, walls and other means of enclosure to be submitted to the relevant planning authority for approval before any onshore works can commence.
