Best Practices for Construction Activities:
|All persons working at the site should obtain, read and understand the Best Management Practices pamphlet for the type(s) of construction being done.|
|Stockpiles of soil, demolition debris, cement, sand, top soil, etc. must be covered with waterproof material or bermed to prevent being washed off site.|
|Fuels, oils, paints, solvents, and other liquid materials must be kept inside bermed areas. Spills must not be washed to the street.|
|Waste concrete cannot be washed into street, storm drain catch basins, or public right-of-way. All dust and slurry from concrete cutting must be removed using a wet-dry vacuum or equivalent.|
|Trash and other construction solid wastes must be placed in a covered trash receptacle.|
|Eroded soil from disturbed slopes must be contained using berms, silt fences, setting basins, or good erosion management practices such as reseeding.|
|Wash water from cleaning construction vehicles and equipment must be kept on-site within a containment area.|
