Erosion & Sediment (E&S) Control Plan Template for a Timber Harvesting Operation (3800-FM-BCW0539)

In Pennsylvania a written Erosion and Sedimentation Control (E&S) Plan is required for all operations that involve 5,000 square feet (0.11 acres) or more of earth disturbance, or that occur in a special protection watershed (classified HQ/EV). An E&S Plan is a site-specific plan identifying the use of E&S Best Management Practices (BMPs) to minimize accelerated erosion and sedimentation. The pertinent regulations can be found in the Pennsylvania Code, Title 25. Environmental Protection, Chapter 102.4(b). This template plan can be used to comply with these regulations. (See also – BMP Inspection Template; Preparedness, Prevention and Contingency Plan Template)

Timber Harvesting BMP Inspection Template

It is a requirement of 25 PA Code §102.4(b)(5)(x) that a maintenance program be conducted to provide for the operation and maintenance of all BMPs to be inspected on a weekly basis and after each stormwater event. The program must provide for completion of a written report documenting each inspection, and all BMP repair, or replacement and maintenance activities (reflected in Section 12 of the Erosion & Sediment Control Plan Template). This optional template is being provided as an acceptable standard format for written BMP inspection reports on non-permitted timber harvesting operations.

Preparedness, Prevention, and Contingency (PPC) Plan Template for Timber Harvesting Operations

Timber harvesting operations that store, use or transport fuels, chemicals, solvents, pesticides, fertilizers, petrochemicals, solid wastes or other hazardous materials onto, on or from the harvest site during earth disturbance activities must prepare and implement a written Preparedness, Prevention, and Contingency (PPC) Plan under 25 PA. Code § 91.34(b) and § 102.5(l). These regulations are reflected in Section 13 of the Erosion & Sediment Control Plan Template. The purpose of the PPC Plan is to prevent and control accidental discharges of polluting materials to surface or groundwater. This optional plan template is designed to be used in conjunction with an Erosion & Sediment Control Plan. A copy of the PPC plan and any subsequent revisions must be maintained on-site.
