Erosion and Sediment Control

One of the functions of Calvert Soil Conservation District (CSCD) is the review of Erosion and Sediment Control Plans (E&S Plans). The authority for this is given to CSCD under Maryland law, through the Annotated Code of Maryland Section Four. CSCD reviews Sediment Control Plans for all clearing and grading in Calvert County including single family lots, subdivisions, commercial development and forest harvest operations. E&S Plans for state and federal projects are not reviewed by the CSCD, but are handled by the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE). For additional questions concerning the E&S Plans contact our Erosion & Sediment Plan Reviewer at (410) 535-1521 ext. 3.

The Maryland Certification of Responsible Personnel online "Green Card" training and exam may be found on the Maryland Department of the Environment's website at
