Erosion Control

The Erosion Control Inspector is responsible for ensuring the Waters of the State are protected from erosion, sedimentation, and pollution that may arise from permitted land disturbance activities within the City. This includes the maintenance of Best Management Practices (BMP) as part of the Erosion Sedimentation and Pollution Control Plans submitted for development. The Inspector maintains a record of inspection activities, including Notices of Violation, for active permits, and reports these records quarterly and semi-annually to the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation District (GSWCC).

The City of Newnan has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the GSWCC allowing the City to conduct a review and approval of Erosion Sedimentation and Pollution Control Plans, submitted for development, without referral of applications and plans to the District.

Various staff in the Engineering Department maintain certifications for plan review, field inspections, and design of erosion control plans, and staff in the Public Works Department maintain certifications for performing land disturbance activities.
