|Construction Program/Borrow Pit and Waste Pile Program
NCDOT is committed to reducing the stormwater impacts of transportation-related development on both linear and non-linear construction projects. The department implemented a sediment and erosion control program for construction activities in 1970, three years prior to the state regulation in 1973. In February 1991, the North Carolina Sediment Control Commission and Division of Land Resources delegated the authority to NCDOT to administer its own sediment and erosion control program within the jurisdiction of its activities. This progressive program requires preparing erosion control plans, implementing and maintaining standard specifications and project-special provisions and monitoring active work sites for compliance with the Sedimentation Pollution Control Act.
