The Minnesota Department of Transportation is committed to controlling erosion and keeping sediment on its construction projects. Many construction permits require the placement of adequate erosion and sediment control devices. Being proactive, aware of site conditions, and properly installing erosion and sediment control devices will save time and money by reducing the amount of sediment removal, re-grading, the potential for costly fines, and the need to reinstall marginal devices.
This pocketbook is intended for inspectors and installers of erosion and sediment control devices. The installation methods primarily correspond to Mn/DOT’s draft 2005 Standard Specifications for Construction and also Standard Plan sheets. The 2000 section of the specifications contains information regarding installation, maintenance and payment. The 3000 section of the specifications contains information related to the required materials.
