Pisces Conservation: Featured projects: #35 - Piling, construction noise and other effects


Noise and vibration from piling and other construction activities can have a major environmental impact during the construction phase. Effects range from fish and marine mammal mortality, deterrence or deflection from territories or from migratory pathways, to smothering of fish, invertebrates and plant life through increased suspended solids or changes in sediment deposition. Projects we have contributed to include:
Ernesettle Jetty, River Tamar: A literature review of the effects of piling on migratory fish and potential effects of the proposal.

Newhaven ERF: A complete review of the construction phase of the Energy Recovery Facility and fishery issues in the River Ouse, covering piling noise & vibration, suspended solids, groundwater, contamination and on-site water use, potential mitigations such as seasonal windows in piling activities, and the benefits of different piling techniques.
