City Of Overland Park   
Urban | Suburban |
This Erosion and Sediment Control Ordinance is designed to provide minimum requirements for the control of erosion and sediment resulting from development. It applies to all land disturbances that require a permit. The principles behind the ordinance include minimizing soil exposure, retaining sediments onsite, and using performance measures and outcomes. Requirements include: a time requirement that limits soil exposure to no more than 21 consecutive days if there is site inactivity; Erosion and Sediment Control Plan written by a Kansas State licensed professional; pre-construction erosion control requirements; routine inspection requirements of erosion and sediment control measures; and perennial vegetation establishment requirements.
