Erosion and sediment, once thought of as rural problems, are causing extensive damage to the soil and water resources of developing communities. Sediment caused by careless development and construction has become one of the Nation's most serious sources of water pollution. This guidebook is intended to help local officials to organize, plan, finance, staff, and implement comprehensive sedimentation control programs. In addition, it should help local officials and administrators understand what is basically a technical problem; it will also help soil and water experts and technicians understand the administrative aspects of sedimentation control. This mutual understanding is necessary if effective control is to be achieved. The concepts and principles presented are based on a year of research, including visits to federal and state agencies and 14 visits to local sedimentation control programs across the United States. A model approach, with appropriate modifications, may be used by many local governments to control their sedimentation problems. (WRSIC abstract)
