MCM 4: Construction Site Stormwater Runoff Control

Licking Soil & Water reviews new development plans with Licking County’s Technical Review Committee, a collaboration between Licking County Planning and Development, Licking County Engineer’s Office, Licking Soil & Water, and other agencies.  Licking Soil & Water specifically looks at construction site sediment and erosion controls, stormwater pollution prevention plans, and compliance with Licking County’s Soil Erosion and Stormwater Regulations and Ohio EPA’s Construction General Permit for Stormwater.

Licking Soil & Water inspects sediment and erosion controls on construction sites in Licking County to look for properly functioning silt fencing, stormwater system inlet protection, channel and stream protection, etc.  We also look for proper construction and maintenance of long-term stormwater infrastructure.

If you plan to develop property in Licking County that will disturb greater than one (1) acre of land or will disturb less than one (1) acre of land but is part of a larger common plan of development or sale, visit the Licking County Planning and Development's website for details regarding the Technical Review Committee process and guidelines or call  (740) 670-5200.
