EROSION and SEDIMENT CONTROL and STORMWATER

When possible, use erosion control methods as the primary control, with sediment control methods as the secondary control. In areas of active construction, it may be difficult to implement some erosion controls. If this is the case, sediment control methods would become the primary control to prevent stormwater discharges.
