(a) Any major modification of an approved plan must be submitted to the Department and processed in the same manner as the original plan, where:
(1) field inspection or evaluation of the plan has revealed the inadequacy of the plan to accomplish erosion and sediment control objectives; or
(2) the person responsible for carrying out the approved plan finds that, because of changed circumstances or for other reasons, the approved plan cannot be effectively carried out.
(b) The Department may, in emergency situations and at its discretion, require the installation of interim erosion and sediment control measures to protect stream channels, other properties, or the general public from damage, that will remain in effect until modifications or revisions to the plan are approved and implemented.
(c) The Department may allow a minor field modification if the modification is consistent with this Chapter, regulations, and state law. The Department must establish a list of allowable field modifications, subject to approval by the Administration.
(d) If a violation of the limits of disturbance shown on the approved plan involves removal or damage to trees, the permittee must obtain and implement an approved reforestation plan from the Planning Board.
