To reduce pollution from construction activities by controlling soil erosion, waterway sedimentation, and airborne dust.
Create and implement an erosion and sedimentation control plan for all construction activities, including but not limited to construction of roads and highways, transit systems, water and wastewater systems, energy systems, waste management systems, buildings to be undertaken by the city development authorities. The plan must conform to the erosion and sedimentation requirements of the 2017 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Construction General Permit (CGP) or local equivalent, whichever is more stringent. Projects must apply the CGP regardless of size. The plan must describe the measures to be implemented.
