Aura's Innovative ESC Program
Caloundra West and Bells Creek, Sunshine Coast

The Aura development has adopted innovative world leading approaches to managing erosion and sediment control (ESC), which is above and beyond industry best practice designed to protect the Pumicestone Passage and tributaries. 

This management approach includes the use of high-efficiency sediment (HES) basins, trialling soil improvement and stabilisation techniques, ESC training for site personnel, and real-time monitoring to guide an adaptive management approach. This progressive approach has achieved exceptional water quality outcomes that exceed currently adopted industry standards.
