Erosion & Sediment Control

ESC in Surrey

Erosion and Sediment Control is the practice of preventing stormwater contamination by sediment through controlling the amount of exposed soils during construction.

Sediment pollution entering stormwater degrades both the infrastructure (storm sewers, catch basins and culverts), and the receiving environment.

Review the Erosion and Sediment Control Bylaw below and see if you require an ESC permit.
