The Departments of the Environment and Natural Resources are authorized to develop regulations to combat soil erosion and control the addition of sediment to waters of the state. As part of the Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Program, an approved plan is required for any earth disturbance of 5,000 square feet or more and 100 cubic yards or more, and oversight is granted to the Departments and to local soil conservation districts. Some exemptions apply.
