  • Can be included in other drawing
  • Limits of disturbance should be clearly indicated on drawings. Contractor to provide orange construction fencing along the entire length of trail at the limit line.

LAYDOWN AREA LOCATION AND ACCESS PLANS

STORMWATER POLLUTION PREVENTION PLAN (SWPPP)

  • A SWPPP or erosion control plan appropriate to the project size and location shall be provided. Temporary and permanent sediment controls should be considered early in the design process, so that temporary controls can become part of permanent stormwater controls.
  • Plan should be executed early in design process requirements should be envisioned as part of finished implementation. For example, run off gravel roads can become part of final trail installation. Sedimentation basins can become final BMP locations.
  • Seed immediately after an area is complete, potentially seeding with annual cover crop before natives establishment. (Designers to include a restoration/ seeding plan as needed)
  • See Erosion Control and Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan

TREE PROTECTION PLAN

SOILS PLAN

  • Indicates areas of soil preparations based on existing soils testing conditions and proposed landscape improvements.
