Example text

There are activities which, due to their limited size, should not be required to provide permanent stormwater management, but which should be required to implement erosion and sediment control. An example is single family home construction that is not part of a larger development. The most common and simplest approach for establishing exemptions and waivers is based on the amount of disturbed area. This approach is easily implemented since determining the amount of disturbed area is simple. The size of the disturbed area for an exempt activity will depend to some extent on local conditions such as rainfall patterns, soil types, and topography.

Sites less than 10 acres need sediment traps and silt fences Inspections will be performed before anticipated storm events, during extended storm events, and after storm events, and once each 24-hour period during extended storm events to identify BMP effectiveness and implement repairs or design changes as soon as feasible depending on field conditions. Discharger is also responsible for inspecting and cleaning all public and private roads for sediment. Construction activities that fall under the jurisdiction of the California Department of Transportation (CALTRANS) have separate permit and regulations.
