§ 152.001  PURPOSE.
   The purpose of this chapter is to establish minimum standards for the control of soil loss through erosion with the intent being to minimize sediment transport through runoff that may degrade the integrity and health of the county’s stream system. Minimum standards for management practices will be applied through the issuance of grading permits for land disturbance that may involve clearing, grubbing, grading, filling, and the movement of soil to alter the topography and for forest harvest activities. Such standards will become conditions of those permits and will be enforced. In addition, actions that may not require grading permits will also be the subject of enforcement if such actions result in erosion and/or sediment transport that may impact adjacent properties or have the potential to result in impact to streams.
