Homeowner Residential Construction (710)

Why do Homeowners need an Erosion & Sediment Control (ESC) Permit?

Homeowners who act as the general contractor on their own construction projects must ensure that the work performed on their site does not impact Boise’s Rivers, streams and stormwater. It is their responsibility to prevent dirt and other sediments from leaving the site during construction. After construction is completed, they must also permanently stabilize the site through re-vegetation, landscaping or other means to ensure that sediment won’t leave the site in the future.
