E&S Plans

A written E&S plan is required to be placed on site for projects proposing greater than or equal to 5,000 square feet of disturbance. Projects with any amount of disturbance in a special protection watershed must develop and implement a written E&S plan. Some municipalities require these E&S plans to be approved by the Conservation District. Contact the municipality in which your project is located to determine if a review and approval of the E&S plan by the Conservation District is required.

3.  Volume and rate of runoff from the project site and its upstream watershed area.

4.  Map of surface waters with their Chapter 93 designations.

5.  Characteristics of the earth disturbance activity, including the past, present and proposed land uses and the proposed alteration to the project site 

6.  Explanation of the location and type of erosion and sedimentation controls to be used during construction.

7. A sequence of erosion and sedimentation control installation and removal in relation to the scheduling of earth disturbance activities, prior to, during and after earth disturbance activities that ensure proper functioning of all controls 

8. Supporting calculations and measurements

9. Plan drawings, including existing and proposed topographic features of the project site and the immediate surrounding area

10. A maintenance program which provides for the operations and maintenance of BMPs and the inspections of BMPs on a weekly basis and after each stormwater event, including the repair or replacement or BMPs to ensure effective and efficient operation and comlpetion of a written report documenting each BMP reapir, replacement, and maintenance activity. 

11. Procedures which ensure that the proper measures for the recycling or disposal of materials associated with or from the project site will be taken. 

12. Identification of the naturally occurring geologic formations or soil conditions that may have the potential to cause pollution during earth disturbance activities and BMP's to avoid or minimize the potential pollution and its impacts.

13. Identification of potential thermal impacts to surface waters from the earth disturbance. Where potential thermal impacts exist, include BMPs to avoid, minimize, or mitigate potential pollution from thermal impacts.
