MAINE EROSION AND SEDIMENT CONTROL BEST MANAGEMENT

MAINE EROSION AND SEDIMENT CONTROL BMPs 10/2016 THE EROSION AND SEDIMENT CONTROL PLAN All projects permitted through the DEP need an erosion and sediment control (ESC) plan; but proper planning is also important for all other projects, and especially if located in an area at risk of eroding and causing sedimentation. The ESC plan should be
