(a) The Department must review each erosion and sediment control plan to determine compliance with this Chapter and the Standards and Specifications before the plan can be approved. In approving a plan, the Department may impose conditions necessary to ensure compliance with this Chapter and state law and to protect public health and safety.
(b) The review and approval process must be part of the comprehensive and integrated plan approval process described in state law.
(c) A concept plan must at least include the mapping of natural resources and sensitive areas, including highly erodible soils and slopes greater than 15%. If these areas would not remain undisturbed, either the concept or site development plan must describe any enhanced protection strategy for these areas during construction.
(d) A site development plan application must include all concept plan information and indicate how any proposed erosion and sediment control practice will be integrated with any proposed stormwater management practice. The stormwater management practice must be shown through a narrative and an overlay plan showing both environmental site design and any erosion and sediment control practice. An applicant should submit an initial sequence of construction and proposed project phasing to achieve the grading unit restriction. If the Director approves, the concept plan and site development plan may be combined.
(e) An applicant must submit a final erosion and sediment control plan to the Department for review and approval. The plan must include all information required by the concept plan and site development plan and any relevant information not already submitted.
(f) A final erosion and sediment control plan is not approved until the Department signs and dates the plan. (2013 L.M.C., ch. 9, § 1.)
