Excavated material (S3.3)

Excavated materials that are to be re-used should be protected from excessive drying or wetting during storage. Additionally, these materials should be excavated, stored, handled and laid to avoid contamination, segregation and loss of fines.
Excavated material unsuitable for re-use must be removed from site as soon as practicable. Excavated material retained on site must be stockpiled within the confines of site barriers, at a safe distance from the trench edge and prevented from entering any drainage system or water course.
