Soil Erosion and Construction Storm Water
How do I know if my construction site needs to have someone with Construction Storm Water (CSW) or Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control (SESC) trainings and how do they attend?
There are several trainings that may apply. Please see EGLE's frequently asked questions document on SESC and CSW trainings for more information.
My construction site appears to fall under the Permit by Rule for Storm Water from Construction Activities. How do I find out more information and what is required?
Please see EGLE's frequently asked questions document on Permit by Rule, which will provide valuable information on determining if your construction site needs to be covered and what the requirements are.
What construction activities require a soil erosion and sedimentation control permit or storm water coverage?
The requirement to obtain a soil erosion and sedimentation control permit or storm water coverage depends on a number of factors. EGLE has developed a guidance document that helps to explain the requirements to determine what type of permit may be needed.
