The condition of the construction site for the winter shut down period shall address proper sediment and erosion control early in the fall growing season so that slopes and other bare earth areas may be stabilized with temporary and/or permanent vegetative cover. All open areas that are to remain idle throughout the winter shall receive temporary erosion control measures including temporary seeding, mulching and/or erosion control blanketing prior to the end of the fall growing season. The areas to be worked beyond the end of the growing season must incorporate soil stabilization measures that do not rely on vegetative cover such as erosion control blankets and heavy mulching. In no case shall requirements less than those required by IEPA NPDES Permit ILR10 apply to projects disturbing more than one acre.
