Soil Erosion Permit Worksheet Mobile App
The Soil Erosion Permit Checklist is an app that is used for tracking the necessary items for obtaining a soil erosion permit.
How does it work?
The app notes the permit number, the date of the worksheet, has an application fee calculator, and more. A comprehensive Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Program is essential for maintaining a healthy environment. A government's engineering professionals at a Department of Environmental Quality, or similar organization, are responsible for monitoring earth movement such as erosion and sediment run of, especially when near a lake, stream, or other body of water. A Soil Erosion Permit is typically obtained for a site in which an earth change will occur, such as a construction site, or a site that is about to be changed significantly through landscape engineering. Depending on laws and regulations, a permit must be obtained before any earthwork can begin. Soil erosion occurs when there is no sediment control policy or soil erosion control policy in place. Without proper control measures, surface water can be contaminated, water quality can be impacted, crop production can be impacted, and accelerated erosion can occur.
