dc.description.abstract Construction site induced water pollution could negatively affect the environment as well as the economic and social well-being of people. The underlying problem that has initiated this study is the current management approach that segregates the mitigation based site water pollution practices with construction planning, consequently isolating the production and environmental variable. This study intents to improve the current practice by integrating site water pollution practices into construction planning by grounding it to prevention based concepts in order to simultaneously address the production and environmental aspects of construction. The exploratory nature of this study has warrant the use of research methods that involve systematic review, integrative literature review and also verification through semi-structured interview with the industry players. The research findings suggest that the distinctive elements of site water pollution preventive practices and construction planning (schedule, method and site layout) could be integrated and applied simultaneously. Construction schedule is found to be the most prominent element of the established integration and should be the initial target for practical implementation of this framework. This study is a pioneer work that acts as a bridge that connects the practical and industry aspects of preventing site water pollution through its linkage with construction planning elements. Consequently, the findings of this study fills the gap of knowledge in both sectors that would enable a concurrent management of both the production and environmental dimensions in construction. en
