Water Management Planning Guidance for Construction Projects


head Site-handover

It is important that the handover to client and end user(s) is supported with comprehensive Operation and Maintenance Manuals that include all aspects, including effective and efficient water use. This will ensure the positive legacy of optimal non-potable water use.

If the site has been located in an area of flood risk it is likely that the build has included flood prevention or alleviation as part of the construction. Details of maintenance or operation of these facilities should be handed over to the site owner upon completion.

Where tanks have been used as a source of water through the construction process, these need to be tested and prepared for site handover. For instance ensuring sediment is cleared from silt traps or sumps prior to handover etc. There should be no residual liability to catchment quality.
