Note: Either this measure, or WQHM-002 Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan, would be applicable, but not both.

For projects that do not require coverage under a NPDES permit per GPM WQHM-2, the project proponent will develop and implement erosion and sediment control measures (or plan), which will include appropriate BMPs to reduce the potential release of water quality pollutants to receiving waters. BMPs may include the following measures:

– Employ tackifiers, soil binders, or mulch as appropriate for erosion control.

– Install sediment erosion control measures, such as straw bales, silt fences, fiber rolls, or equally effective measures, at repair areas adjacent to stream channels, drainage canals, and wetlands, as needed. Sediment control measures will be monitored during and after each storm event for effectiveness. Modifications, repairs, and improvements to sediment control measures will be made as needed to protect water quality.

– No sediment control products will be used that include synthetic or plastic monofilament or cross-joints in the netting that are bound/stitched (such as straw wattles, fiber rolls, or erosion control blankets), and which could trap snakes, amphibians, and other wildlife.
