1.  An erosion control plan statement with a simple map shall be submitted to describe the area to be disturbed and the erosion control measures to be employed. The statement shall also give the proposed site development schedule.

2.  Provision shall be made for water being pumped from the site during construction, indicating measures to be used for control of runoff.

3.  Filter fences, straw bales or equivalent control measures shall be placed along all sideslope and downslope sides of the construction site.

4.  Approval of the erosion control plan by the Village Engineer, and installation of all erosion control measures, shall be in place prior to any clearing or excavation within the site. The Village may place an immediate stop-work order on the project if no permit has been given, or if the permittee does not comply with the approved plan.
