    Erosion Control

    All land disturbance requires effective erosion control to prevent sediment from leaving the site to streets, creeks, swales, storm drains, and other properties.  Erosion control measures must be installed prior to commencing land disturbance and must be properly maintained throughout the project until permanent vegetation is again established.
