  • No areas of exposed soil are in need of erosion control.

  • Earth batters are free of “rill” erosion.

  • Long-term soil stockpiles are protected from wind, rain and stormwater flow
    with appropriate drainage and erosion controls.

  • Sediment fences are free from damage.

  • Sediment-laden stormwater is not simply flowing “around” the sediment
    fences or other sediment traps.

  • Sediment controls placed up-slope/around stormwater inlets are appropriate
    for the type of inlet structure.

  • All sediment traps are free of excessive sediment deposition.

  • The settled sediment layer within a sediment basin is clearly visible through
    the supernatant prior to discharge of such water.

  • All reasonable and practicable measures are being taken to control sediment
    runoff from the site.

  • Stabilised surfaces have a minimum 70% soil coverage.

  • All soil surfaces are being appropriately prepared (i.e. pH, nutrients,

  • The site is adequately prepared for imminent storms.

  • All ESC measures are in proper working order.
