Sediment Erosion Control Surety
This process applies when a developer wishes to receive a permit for land disturbing for a site either through a Mass Grading Permit or a Site Permit. The purpose of the surety is to protect downstream property owners from erosion in the event work stops on the site and the applicant is no longer able to maintain Erosion Control measures. The surety will cover permanent stabilization for the disturbed area permitted.
Applicant must determine the size of the land disturbance in acres (surety is based on a unit price per disturbed acreage)
