Erosion and Sediment Control

Anyone involved in land development, design, review, permitting, construction, monitoring, inspection, or any land disturbing activity in Georgia must meet the education requirements and be certified by the GSWCC program developed in consultation with the Georgia Environmental Protection Division and the Stakeholder Advisory Board. If your E&SC plan does not show a vegetative buffer around a site, but there is an area on the perimeter that does not require clearing, then save the existing vegetation! A good vegetative buffer 25’-35’ can trap 85-95% of the sediment in runoff water.
