Erosion Mitigation/Site Stabilization Plans

When regulatory and professional consultations lead to a recommendation that one or more erosion Best Management Practices (BMPs) be considered, an erosion mitigation or site stabilization “plan” should be designed. The plan should include a detailed plan sheet(s) depicting the property boundaries and the location of all proposed BMPs, and a description of the work to be performed. The plan does not need to be prepared by a professional in all cases; however, the quality and clarity of the plan will generally improve the efficiency and timeliness of any subsequent permitting that may be required from local, state, and federal authorities. Good plans will benefit the construction contractor and can help avoid costly mistakes during the construction process.
