Construction Compliance

The Construction Sites Compliance Program reduces the amount of sediment and other construction-related pollutants from entering the stormwater sewer system. The City is committed to enhancing and protecting streams, lakes, wetlands and rivers that may be impacted by sediment laden runoff. We encourage builders to maintain the natural balance between sediment supply and transport.

It is the City's policy to encourage erosion control by leaving land undisturbed as long as possible (by project phasing) and using temporary and permanent erosion control best management practices (BMPs). BMP details can be found in Volume 3 of the Urban Storm Drainage Criteria Manual on the Mile High Flood District's website.

Under City code, the City of Westminster has the authority to issues Notices of Violation (NOVs) as well as stop work orders for developers or contractors who does not comply with sediment and erosion control measure requirements. Stormwater management information related to construction sites can be found through eTrakIT.
