Implementation in the Design Process:
In predesign and early design, seek direction from the local government unit or authority with jurisdiction over the project’s erosion and sedimentation control. Understand applicable rules, regulations, and permitting requirements. Determine soil type, soil structure, and limitations of soil, by performing a detailed geotechnical analysis.
Through the design process, evaluate what types of erosion and sedimentation control measures are appropriate for the specific types of soils and slopes present onsite, and develop drawings and specifications that protect soil, water, and utilities form erosion and sedimentation.
Hold a preconstruction meeting to identify requirements for sediment control during and after the construction process. Monitor project submittals for compliance with plans and details. Coordinate as necessary with contractors to ensure correct application of erosion and sedimentation controls and necessary modifications. Maintain temporary erosion control until the site is fully vegetated and stabilized and the stormwater management techniques are fully functional and online.
Create an operations and management manual that requires, at a minimum, inspections and necessary maintenance of the site and stormwater management areas for erosion and sedimentation and ensures that operations staff is familiar with site maintenance.
