In lieu of submission of an erosion and sediment control plan for the construction of this single family dwelling, addition or demolition I agree to comply with any reasonable requirements determined necessary by employees of the Town of Colonial Beach, Virginia, representing either the Zoning Administrator or Director of Public Works, or the Town. Such requirements shall be based on the conservation standards contained in the Colonial Beach Erosion and Sediment Control Ordinance, and shall represent the minimum practices necessary to provide adequate control of erosion and sedimentation on or resulting from this project provided the project exceeds 2,500 square feet of soil disturbance. Soil disturbance includes piles of excess soil or new soil needed to complete the project. Soil includes sand, gravel, and similar materials.
As a minimum, all denuded areas on the lot shall be stabilized within 7 days of final grading with permanent vegetation or a protective ground cover suitable for the time of the year.
I further understand that failure to comply with such requirements within three working days following notice by representatives of the Town could result in citation for violation of the Town’s Erosion and Sediment Control ordinance.
Measures specified by plan approving authority: Maintain and install proper erosion controls including proper entrance. Keep roads free of debris at all times. A minimum surety ($1,000 for accessory buildings, $1,500 for homes on lots up to 1 acre, and $2,500 for lots larger than 1 acre plus an additional $100 for each 1/10 of an acre over 2 acres) must be posted with the town prior to final erosion and sediment inspection unless the lot is sodded or a stand of grass equaling 80% coverage and 3 inches in height exists. A final C-O will not be scheduled if these requirements are not met.
In place of a Stormwater Management Plan for the construction of this single-family detached residential structure, I agree to comply with the requirements of this Agreement in Lieu of a Stormwater Management Plan (or other requirements as established by the Department when necessary) to ensure compliance with the applicable post-construction stormwater management provisions of the Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP) Regulations.

This Agreement in Lieu of a Stormwater Management Plan does not authorize land disturbance. Land disturbing activities cannot begin until the applicable Virginia Erosion and Sediment Control Program (VESCP) Authority provides authorization.
