Construction Site Diversion
CONSTRUCTION SITE DIVERSION
"Erosion control measures shall be placed along down slope areas and along side slope areas as required to prevent or reduce erosion where erosion during construction will result in a loss of soil to waters of the state, public sewer inlets or off-site." (Reference: Section Comm 21.125(1)(a) of the Wisconsin Administrative Code).
When designing diversion berms, consider the use of an emergency overflow section to limit damage during storms exceeding the 2-year, 24-hour duration event. Rip rap protection shall be provided at overflow sections.
