Inspection & Enforcement


Inspections of erosion and sediment control BMPs are required at least once per 7 calendar days, or within a reasonable time period (not to exceed 48 hours) of a rainfall event which causes stormwater runoff to occur onsite. The operator / permittee should consider developing comprehensive inspection procedures to address conditions at their site. These procedures include:
  • Formal and informal inspections
  • Inspections before, during and after rain events
  • Targeting certain BMPs or areas more frequently
  • Training staff and subcontractors
