The Importance of Having an Erosion and Sediment Control Plan

The Importance of Having an Erosion and Sediment Control Plan

Compliance Resources, Inc. has 20 years of experience as a stormwater consultant for the construction industry, helping companies develop erosion and sediment control plans in accordance with state and local regulations.

If you are preparing to start construction works on a new site, you should work with a professional stormwater consultant company to create the erosion and sediment control plan. This plan is part of the required documentation you must submit in order to obtain approval from local city and county governments.

What is contained in an erosion and sediment control plan? It represents a set of best management practices aimed at mitigating the damage to the environment caused by work at construction sites. Construction causes erosion of the soil and sedimentation and the erosion and sediment control plan identifies where you will place stormwater management practices to minimize pollutants from entering into surface water. 

Some Best Management Practices for Erosion and Sediment Control

A certified professional in erosion and sediment control can assist your company in developing and implementing a set of best management practices for erosion and sediment control. These management practices aim to limit sediment erosion and ensure the future stability and safety of the soil where you plan to erect buildings.

Among other soil erosion and sediment control best practices, a CPESC professional will recommend:

  • Leaving as much topsoil and vegetation as possible in place on the construction site
  • Minimizing the time when soil is exposed without vegetative cover
  • Stabilizing disturbed soil as soon as possible
  • Removing sediment from stormwater runoff while still on site
  • Creating drainage ways for runoffs.
