How To Achieve Compliance

Compliance - Now that your plan is certified, you need to keep your project in compliance. Advance planning, installation of erosion control measures, internal inspections and maintenance are the keys to keeping your project in compliance.

Pre-Construction Meeting - We highly recommend that you schedule a pre-construction meeting on site with the District to review the requirements of your Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Plan, District inspection procedures, and other pertinent information. 

Know Your SESC Plan - If site changes are required after your plans are certified, you will need to submit a revised Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Plan to the District for review and re-certification PRIOR to implementing changes in the field.

72 Hour Advance Notice - Be sure to fill out and return the 72 Hour Notice prior to starting construction. The 72 Hour Notice is included with your certified plan and certification letter.

Tips to Keep Your Project in Compliance

Site Inspections - Sites are routinely inspected for compliance. Your certified Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Plan is required to be on-site at all times.

Reports of Compliance - A Report of Compliance is required from the District BEFORE a Certificate of Occupancy can be issued by the municipal Construction Official. Inspection requests must be scheduled a week in advance. 

The following items need to be addressed prior to scheduling a Report of Compliance Inspection:

Types of Compliances

Conditional - Is issued for the temporary stabilization of staggered occupancy projects or during the non-growing season. Compliance with all other requirements of the certified Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Plan is also required.

Complete - Is issued when permanent stabilization has been established on the ENTIRE project. Permanent stabilization is defined as adequate establishment of permanent grass, if applicable. A Complete Compliance is issued after one full growing season has passed.
