Preliminary Inspections

About Preliminary Inspections

Prior to permit issuance it may be deemed necessary, based on known site characteristics and erosion control plans submitted, to conduct an on-site inspection on any property for which a permit or waiver is applied for.  

Upon inspection the program staff will verify the overall anticipated effectiveness of the proposed erosion control plan and may require modifications before issuing the permit.
