  • Standard notes
  • Construction Staging
  • Special Considerations (Species at Risk (SAR), Low Impact Development (LID), etc.)

Chapter 8: Plan Submission Requirements

  • Level of detail for various studies
  • Submission requirements

Learning Objectives

  1. Erosion Risk Assessment: Participants will gain an understanding of the ERA approach and will be able to carry out / follow along with a practical example.
  2. ESC Design: Participants will learn the elements of various BMP designs and overall considerations in establishing an ESC plan.
  3. Plan Submission: Participants will learn the expected level of detail for ESC at various levels of study (preliminary engineering, functional servicing, detailed design / site alteration, etc.) to facilitate the plan preparation and review process.
