Within a reasonable time after that notification by the utility person, the department shall inspect the project site to ensure that the permanent best management practices are adequate and functioning properly. If the inspection of the project site reveals that the best management practices are not adequate or not functioning properly, the utility person, upon notification from the department or based on its own inspection, shall promptly take the appropriate corrective action. Where the utility person takes corrective action based on its own inspection of a project site, the utility person shall immediately notify the department of that corrective action.
