***
If you answered YES to A, B, or C, please make sure your plan



addresses these items.



III.

SEQUENCE OF CONSTRUCTION


In order for an Er
osion and Sedimentation Control Plan to be effective,
all

phases of construction must take place in an orderly sequence. Every effort
should

be made to minimize the amount of earth that is exposed and limit the
time disturbed

earth is exposed to the force
s of erosion. The first step in all
projects is the


installation of sediment barriers or traps below the project, and
the installation of

any necessary Best Management Practices (BMP’s) to handle
runoff onto the project. The sequence should then descri
be the various
construction steps necessary to complete the project, and end with the removal
of all temporary controls after final stabilization is complete. Please use the
space below and label each step in numerical order. Attach

additional pages if
n
ecessary.

Management Practices that will be implemented. Drawings and designs for any
practice

not illustrated in this manual should be attache
d and referenced in this
section.

B.

Check if applicable




_____All items checked above will be to the specifications of this guide.


_____Alternative Best Management Practices and/or specifications are
proposed and are attached.



V.

PERMANENT CONTROLS




Prior to completion

of the project state law requires that steps be taken


to provide permanent stabilization. All disturbed areas must be protected to


prevent accelerated erosion. In other words, soil cannot be left exposed.


Re
-
establishment of vegetation and pavement

are examples of permanent


controls. If you are re
-
vegetating an area the descriptions should include


the seeding mixture to be used, top soil applications, lime
,

and fertilizer


instructions.

Check if applicable




_____Permanent vegetation will b
e established per the recommendations




of this guide.



_____Alternative specifications have been developed for re
-
vegetation




and are attached.



VI.

RECYCLING OR DISPOSAL OF MATERIALS FROM THE PROJECT SITE


Briefly describe how was
te materials associated with or from the project
site

will be dealt with.



_____________________________________________________________




_____________________________________________________________







VII.

MAINTENANCE PROGRAM




All erosion control

practices require maintenance to function


properly. Specific requirements for maintenance are described on the


design detail sheets. Please note the following required maintenance


procedures and list other applicable procedures for control measures


you will be using.





REQUIRED

Until the site is stabilized, all erosion and sedimentation




controls must be maintained properly. Maintenance must




include inspections of all erosion and sedimentation controls




after each storm event and on a weekl
y basis. All




preventative and remedial maintenance work, including




clean out, repair, replacement, remulching, and renetting




must be performed immediately.



REQUIRED

Should any measure contained within this plan prove




incapable of adequately

removing sediment from on
-
site




flows prior to discharge or of stabilizing the surfaces




involved, additional measures must be immediately




implemented by the property owner to eliminate all such




problems.



REQUIRED

After final site stabilizati
on has been achieved,




temporary erosion and sedimentation controls must




be removed. Areas disturbed during removal of the




controls must be stabilized.



Other applicable maintenance procedures:_______

OPEN FILE POLICY


1.

ACCESS TO FILES

-

All files created or maintained by the District to meet the


requirements of their delegation agreement with the Department are open to


inspection and review by th
e public. If a request for file information is
r
eceived,


the District staff will comply in the following manner:



A.

Advise the requesting party that the files are open to the public for



inspection during normal working hours (Monday
-
Friday, 8:00 A.M.

to



4:00 P.M.) pending availability of District staff. Appointments will be



made at the convenience of District staff.





B
.

No files or portions of files may be removed from the District office



by the requesting party. Provide an area where the

files may be viewed



without unusual disturbance. To avoid the possibility of District file



materials being inadvertently removed from the District office, the



requesting party will be provided with a note pad for taking handwritten



notes. Other
personal items will remain inside the office door.



C
.

Have the requesting party list all documents and other file items that



are desired. As per District policy, copying documents will be charged



at $.
25
/copy. The party may take notes, or duplicate

by their own ands,

any file materials. Remove all file materials from the examination area
before

copying. If copies are requested, copies will be made
within five
(5) days of the request. The requestor must pay for all copy fees and the
exact amount of

postage.


D.

The Montour Conservation District will provide a written receipt.




E
.

District staff may remove personal handwritten notes, or information



which may identify an informant.











2.

DENYING ACCESS TO FILES



Complainant
-

The Departme
nt has always taken the position not to release

any information which may disclose the identity of an informant. On May 4,
1989,

the Environmental Hearing Board (EHB) upheld this policy. The EHB
determined

that the disclosure of the identity of the infor
mer will be disclosed if
“relevant and

helpful” to the defense. Therefore,
ALL COMPLAINT FILES ARE
TO BE CONSIDERED

PRIVILEGED INFORMATION AND WITHHELD TO
PROTECT THE IDENTITY OF THE INFORMANT.



NATIONAL POLLUTANT DISCHARGE ELIMINATION SYSTEM (NPDES)



O
n November 16, 1990, the Environmental Protection Agency developed
permitting regulations for certain storm water discharges as required by the Federal
Clean Water Act. Construction activities proposing to disturb one or more acres of land
are covered by
these regulations and must be authorized by a National Pollutant
Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit.



A general permit has been developed and is available for use for many storm
water discharges from construction activities. Some construction ac
tivities that are
not

eligible to participate in the general permit are:



1.

Activities in special protection waters
.


2.

Activities that discharge toxins in toxic amounts
.


3.

Activities that would violate water quality standards
.


4.

Timber Harvesting

a
ctivities disturbing greater than 25 acres requiring



an earth disturbance
.


WATER OBSTRUCTION AND ENCROACHMENT PERMITS
