Wis. Admin. Code Department of Transportation § Trans 401.05 - Basic principles of erosion control and storm water management

Current through March 28, 2022

A project shall be planned and implemented in accordance with the following basic principles of erosion control and storm water management:

(1) Investigate the intended project site and design the project to avoid or minimize adverse effects that may be caused by erosion or a discharge to waters of the state.
(2) Design or select best management practices for the project to:
(a) Avoid or minimize on-site erosion damage in order to avoid or minimize off-site sediment or pollutant accumulation that may result from a discharge.
(b) Protect the perimeter area of the site and the disturbed areas from erosion and pollutant accumulation that may result from off-site runoff.
(c) Reduce runoff velocities and retain sediments and pollutants on the site to the maximum extent practicable.
(3) Minimize the size of the disturbed area exposed at any one time and the duration of the exposure.
(4) Stabilize the disturbed area as soon as practicable.
(5) Establish a thorough preventative maintenance program that can reasonably be implemented as appropriate within the context of the standard specifications for the type of project being developed or through the use of special contract provisions.
