When construction of your home began, the builder was required to obtain a permit or a waiver from Clinton County to protect the environment from soil erosion.
As a new homeowner, you now have that responsibility until your lot has permanent vegetation and landscaping in place.
If your home had a permit as part of your property purchase, you should have received a permit transfer making it your responsibility to maintain the control measures and ensure they function properly, according to the plan your builder submitted for the permit. If your home had a waiver, you still must maintain or install controls to stop soil from eroding off your site. Checklists, Forms, Permits, and Worksheets Page
