Stockpiling Materials Storage

Temporary stockpiling of material onsite shall be minimized. Any excavated material shall be stockpiled in areas a sufficient distance from watercourses, where it cannot enter the stream channel. Prior to start of construction, the contractor shall determine if such sites are available at or near the project location. If onsite or nearby sites are unavailable, a location will be determined where material can be deposited. Spoils shall be contoured to disperse runoff and stabilized with mulch and (native) vegetation. Materials such as plastic sheeting held down with rocks or sandbags over stockpiles, silt fences, and berms of hay bales, shall be used to minimize movement of exposed or stockpiled soils from wind or precipitation.
