Small Construction Sites
Small construction sites, those sites more than 1 acre but less than 5 acres in size, are now required by the State to follow certain procedures to ensure our waterways are protected and productive for years to come. It is important to note that the regulations are not directed at punishing any one. Instead the regulations are in place to protect the people who use our waterways for recreation and as drinking water sources from harmful pollutants and to ensure our water resources are there for many generations.

A copy of a factsheet highlighting many of the requirements can be downloaded here.
It is important to note that these regulations do not exempt someone from filing a development permit with the County. The County is committed to working with individuals in the construction industry. And, with anyone who fits into this category, to assist in understanding and complying with the regulations. Any questions should be directed to Stephen Belknap ph(940)349-2997, or email Stephen Belknap.
