Erosion & Sediment Control
An effective Erosion & Sediment Control Program as part of a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan has become critical to every construction site over one acre. All private entities, individuals and public agencies are subject to enforcement actions including citations and fines for illegally releasing polluted storm water from construction sites.
Sediment laden runoff from construction sites can kill fish and aquatic plants, and destroy breeding grounds for aquatic life. Suspended soil particles also are carriers for other types of pollutants including heavy metals, petroleum by-products, pesticides, and other non-visible pollutants.
In addition to more rigorous inspection and enforcement activities from the agencies, there are a growing number of private citizens groups who are monitoring local construction projects and their affect on nearby lakes and streams. They are filing civil and criminal suits against those who violate the Clean Water Act through illegal construction site discharges.
