All land disturbing activity shall provide soil erosion control pursuant to this section and chapter 30.63A SCC.

(1) The faces of cut and fill slopes shall be prepared and maintained to control erosion. Soil erosion control may consist of effective planting, hydro-seeding or mulching. Soil erosion control protection for the slopes shall be installed as soon as practicable in accordance with SCC 30.63A.445 and 30.63A.450 and prior to calling the department to request final land disturbing activity inspection. Where cut slopes are not subject to erosion due to the erosion-resistant character of the materials, such protective measures may not be required, as determined by the department.

(2) Where necessary to provide erosion protection to adjoining properties, check dams, cribbing, riprap, silt fences or other devices and methods shall be employed. (Added by Amended Ord. 10-023, June 9, 2010, Eff date Sept. 30, 2010; Amended by Ord. 15-103, Jan. 11, 2016, Eff date Jan. 22, 2016).
