he fol­low­ing stan­dards shall be applied in the sub­di­vi­sion and con­struc­tion of land areas.

(A) The devel­op­ment shall con­form to the nat­ur­al limi­tations pre­sent­ed by topog­ra­phy and soil so as to cre­ate the least poten­tial for soil erosion.

(B) Nat­ur­al plant cov­er­ing shall be retained and pro­tect­ed so far as is con­sis­tent with devel­op­ing the site.

(C) When soil is exposed, the expo­sure shall be for the short­est fea­si­ble peri­od of time.

(D) Land shall be devel­oped in incre­ments of work­able size such that ade­quate ero­sion and sil­ta­tion con­trols can be pro­vid­ed as con­struc­tion pro­gress­es.  The small­est prac­ti­cal area of land shall be exposed at any one peri­od of time.

(E) Appro­pri­ate con­trol mea­sures shall be installed pri­or to devel­op­ment when nec­es­sary to con­trol erosion.

(F) Pro­vi­sion shall be made to effec­tive­ly accom­mo­date the increased runoff caused by changed soil and sur­face con­di­tions dur­ing and after development.

(G) Sed­i­ment basins, debris basins, desilt­ing basins, or silt traps shall be installed and main­tained to remove sed­i­ment from runoff waters under­go­ing development.

(H) Tem­po­rary veg­e­ta­tion or, where appro­pri­ate, mulching or oth­er ero­sion con­trol prod­uct shall be used to pro­tect areas exposed dur­ing development.

(I) Where the top­soil is removed, suf­fi­cient top­soil shall be set aside for respread­ing over the devel­oped area.  The soil shall be restored to a depth of four (4) inch­es and shall be of a qual­i­ty at least equal to the soil qual­i­ty pri­or to development.

(J) Per­ma­nent, final plant cov­er­ing or struc­tures shall be installed as soon as pos­si­ble.
