Sediment Control Plan Required for New Mexico
- According to the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) Surface Water Quality Bureau this can be a section in the Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan, and has to be certified by a New Mexico Professional Engineer.
- Currently the City of Albuquerque is using the RUSLE program to determine potential sediment transport before, during, and after construction activities. This program was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). The New Mexico NRCS web site has the soil physical properties for Bernallillo County.
- For a simpler approach to the RUSLE Model go the NM NRCS Agronomy Technical Note Web Page. See number Agro-28.
- Physical Properties Including, Bulk Density, Permeability, AWC, Linear Extensibility, OM and Erosion Factors [114k]
NOI forms now have a seven-day waiting period to allow the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service time to review regarding endangered species.
