Erosion and Sediment Control Inspections
Estimated October 2020
Metric was consulted to provide stormwater services for an INDOT slide correction project located on SR 262 near Rising Sun in Ohio County, Indiana. Slide correction projects are typically small but emergent repairs that are needed due to undermining of the structural integrity of the roadway. Metric worked in coordination with INDOT’s contractor to develop the Stormwater Quality Control Plan (SWQCP) in accordance with INDOT standards prior to construction. The SWQCP is a supplemental piece of the Department’s Design that allows for contractors to have input on the sequencing and implementation of the erosion and sediment control plan. Challenges for this job included limited work area for implementation of stormwater measures as well as immediate water resource concerns.
Metric provided guidance and oversight during mobilization to ensure proper implementation of measures for initial grading operations. Throughout construction, the Metric team performed weekly and post-rain event inspections as required by 327 IAC 15-5 (Rule 5). Inspections include evaluation and reporting of best management practices (BMPs) as well as guidance and recommendations for maintaining compliance.
