Construction Site Stormwater Runoff Control

Purpose

Construction sites can be substantial sources of pollution to our waterways if stormwater management controls aren't in place. This section of the permit outlines minimum standards for preventing stormwater runoff from construction activities that disturb one or more acres of land.

Relevant terms

  • Development: means any construction or grading activities to improved or unimproved real estate.
  • Disturbed area: means an area where the ground cover is destroyed or removed leaving the land subject to accelerated erosion.
