Erosion Control Manuals
Erosion Control Manual

This manual provides erosion prevention and sediment control guidance for projects using Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) standards. The purpose is to help users understand erosion processes, anticipate potential impacts of construction activities, and successfully implement Best Management Practices to avoid pollution and achieve full compliance with permit requirements.
Chapter 1 - Introduction, regulatory background, roles of other agencies, ODOT policies, and responsibilities of involved parties.
 
Chapter 2 – Erosion and sedimentation processes and concepts to minimize construction impacts.
 
Chapter 3 - Best management practices (BMP’s) for erosion prevention and sediment control.
 
Chapter 4 – Management of other construction site pollutants.
 
Chapter 5 – Erosion control planning and site information.
 
Chapter 6 – Design and Erosion and Sediment Control Plans (ESCP).
 
Chapter 7 - Construction and maintenance.

Erosion Control Field Manual

This manual is a field guide on erosion and sediment control for projects using ODOT standards. The purpose is to present tools for erosion prevention and sediment Control in a simple, portable format.
 
The field guide is derived from the ODOT Erosion Control Manual, which is based on requirements of National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) laws and permits.  Consult the Erosion Control Manual for more information and references. Refer to the applicable project NPDES Permit for specific requirement language.
 
This manual does not address in-water work such as isolation of work areas for sediment containment.  Refer to the ODOT Hydraulics Manual or consult the Region Hydraulics Engineer or Technical Services Geo/Environmental Senior Hydraulics Engineer.
 
Project issues can be addressed by the project professional of record (POR).  General questions can be addressed to the Region erosion control point-of-contact or the Erosion Control Program Coordinator in the Technical Services Geo/Environmental Section.
