What is a Michigan Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Permit Bond?
Any soil disturbances over streams, lakes, wetlands, and drains within Wayne County, Michigan requires a Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control (S.E.S.C.) Permit. If the disturbance occurs in one of the communities that Wayne County regulates, then contractors must apply for a Wayne County SESC permit and get bonded before any soil erosion and sedimentation control work can begin.
The Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Permit Bond guarantees faithful compliance with all applicable rules and provisions on soil erosion and sedimentation control set forth by Wayne County and the State of Michigan.
The bond ensures honest performance and completion of approved plans and specifications regarding soil erosion and sedimentation control work. It is also a financial recourse against any previous conditions that have not been complied with.
Wayne County has established the Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Program to investigate losses, disturbances or changes in soils and landscape through ongoing and proposed construction activities.
What are the bond conditions?
- The bond must be written by a Surety accepted and authorized to transact business in the State of Michigan, particularly Wayne County.
- The Principal (contractor) has made application to establish, and maintain soil erosion and sedimentation control features at a property within Wayne County by Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act 451 of 1994.
- The Principal must faithfully comply with the provisions of the Wayne County Soil Conservation District Standards and Specifications for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control.
- If the Principal conforms as agreed, the obligation will be void; otherwise, it will remain in full force and effect.
- If the Director of the Wayne County Department of Environment determined that any of the preceding conditions have not been complied with, he/she would have recourse to the rights supporting the bond.
