STEP 2:

PROVIDE EROSION CONTROL INFORMATION IN THE FORM OF AN ATTACHMENT

WHEN BUILDING  of STRUCTURES will disturb soil

NOTE:   Wisconsin law required erosion control on all construction sites. Soil must not be allowed to be carried off your property by water runoff. If you are disturbing more than one acre you are required to file a storm water control plan with the DNR. Erosion enforcement could come from the county, the DNR or the State, depending on the sensitivity and size of the building area.  If there are potential erosion control issues such as grades over 12%, they must be indicated on a BUILDING SITE PLAN  and  filed with this application. Show any wet lands, or water of any kind.  Use arrows to show the downward direction of slopes.  Remember that most erosion control inspectors generally believe that any ditch that flows to any protected watershed will need special attention including ditches along public roads.


It is the owners responsibility to comply with any county or DNR rules that apply to erosion, storm water and set-backs.



BUILDING MATERIAL WASTES AND LEAD PAINT

All building material wastes shall be managed to prevent pollutants and debris from being carried off the site by runoff. Waste is not to be buried or burned on site. Cement trucks must not wash up on streets or right of way. Owners could be charged for cement removal or repairs to roads in the public right of way.


Homes built prior to 1978 could contain lead paint which is dangerous to your health and especially for children. The Wisconsin Department of Health has issued rules that are to be followed when doing renovations in these structures. See the department WEB site:        http://dhs.wisconsin.gov/lead/index.htm



SPECIAL DRAINAGE CONCERNS

Some building sites have potentially problematic drainage issues. It is the responsibility of the building permit applicant to consider soil and surface drainage conditions when placing any structure on a site.  This includes how the placement will influence drainage from and to adjacent property.  It is the designer and owners responsibility to provide methods to effectively control water ingress into a basement area and especially at widows used for egress from basements
