Expert advice on farm soil conservation projects


Soil Con provides specialist erosion and sediment control advice to local councils, government departments and the civil construction industry.

Landholders will be able to tap into more than 80 years experience in natural resource management at the Soil Conservation Service site at the field days.

The Soil Conservation Service is a commercial unit of Local Lands Services and will have plenty of information on available services for landholders, councils, government departments and the civil construction industry.

“Our staff deliver natural resource projects across NSW that provide long term, environmental, social and economic results for our clients and the public in general,” spokesperson David Thompson said.

“The SCS is proud of its ability to provide end-to-end services from project concept to delivery, including the design, costings and approvals, through to the project construction and engagement of local contractors.

“The type of work we undertake ranges from the traditional conservation earthworks we built our reputation on such as gully fill and contour and waterway systems, to farm water supply projects.

“We also carry out fire trail access works, creek and river scale restoration works, land rehabilitation and reclamation of contaminated land projects, derelict mine rehabilitation projects, and coastal rehabilitation and emergency response works.”

Soil Con provides specialist erosion and sediment control advice to local councils, government departments and the civil construction industry.

Training courses are available in construction site erosion and sediment control.

Mr Thompson said natural resource management experts were available to provide advice and training in soils related areas of land conservation and management.
