Example Erosion Control Plan

An erosion control plan should be overlayed on the project grading plan(s) or site plan if there is not a grading plan. The erosion control plan needs to show what BMPs will be used and where, as well as the total disturbance area. The plan must include measures to prevent erosion, contain sediment and control drainage.

The erosion control plan must also include installation details of the BMPs as well as notes. Some typical notes and details are shown below.

Typical Notes:

  1. Person responsible for erosion control / phone number:
  2. No grading may take place between October 15th and April 15th without a Winter Grading Permit.

  5. Soils tracked on adjacent streets shall be cleaned up at the end of each work day.
  6. Inactive soil stockpiles shall be covered. Active stockpiles shall be covered prior to a forecasted rain event.
  7. The erosion control plan shall be re-evaluated and adjusted accordingly as the site changes and after rain events.
