Erosion and Sedimentation Control Program

Project Scope: This evaluation will examine the state-created erosion and sedimentation control program and the federally-created construction stormwater National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program, both of which are administered at the state level, by the Department of Environmental Quality's Division of Energy, Mineral and Land Resources (DEMLR). This study will evaluate the effectiveness of the erosion and sedimentation control program, determine the existence of duplication between the erosion and sedimentation control program and the construction stormwater NPDES program, and identify related opportunities for efficiencies.
