Erosion and Sediment Control Ordinance 2007 Update

Background on E&SC Program Update

In December of 2005, City and NRD staff met with a variety of interest groups including developers, builders, neighborhood and environmental groups to get input on structuring Lincoln's program to meet federal requirements. The City received some additional guidance from the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) in early 2006 and continued the dialogue with builders and developers including a large group meeting in June of 2006. At this meeting, an Erosion and Sediment Control Working Group was formed to develop recommendations for Lincoln's program, particularly as it relates to requirements for small building sites. Participation in the Working Group was open to anyone interested. It is comprised of individuals representing builder, developer, and contractor interests in the City. The Working Group has had three meetings to date beginning in July and has provided guidance and recommendations to City and NRD staff on the program.
