When will my site be inspected?
Erosion control inspections are conducted at least once a week, but as often as necessary, and after any rain event over .5”.

Erosion control practices should be inspected and maintained by the permit holder prior to any visit from the City. If the City inspections show inadequate protection of the site, permit holders will be contacted on a limited courtesy basis. If corrections are not made or if the site is not maintained to prevent erosion, a notice of violation, fines and legal action will follow.
