Deadline Looming in City for Erosion & Sediment Control
The city of Grants Pass has reminded contractors and subcontractors to take the necessary actions to insure sediment remains on the development site during the rainy season. Control measures need to be in place by October 15th. Unprotected sites are subject to a minimum fine of $295 per day.
Construction permits for work on slopes of fifteen percent or greater will not be issued after the 15th unless grading is completed and approved, and erosion and sediment control measures are established.
The Community Development Director may, on a case by case basis, extend the deadline based on weather conditions at the time. Request forms are available in the Community Development Office or on the city’s website.
