Construction & Commercial

In the past, developers needed only worry about controlling erosion during construction for projects disturbing 5 acres or more of land. That has all changed. The 5 acre threshold has been reduced to 1 acre. There are now requirements for both erosion control and proper hazardous material storage during construction. Site planning must include measures to avoid sensitive areas, decrease impervious surface area, and provide for on-site treatment of stormwater runoff using Best Management Practices (BMPs). Construction projects will need to apply for a local permit which will include a review of plan sheets and project sequencing.
 
So, generally speaking, those construction sites that involve the disturbing of one (1) acre or more of land (or any phased project that disturbs one (1) acre or more over a period of time) require Rule 5 Permits.
