Milton receives erosion control issuing authority status.


The City of Milton now has the authority to review erosion control plans and issue permits for land disturbance without concurrent approval from the state, said Plan Review Engineer Jimmy Sanders.

It's all thanks to a memorandum of agreement with the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission and the Fulton County Soil and Water Conservation District that shows Milton has the resources and capability to comply with the requirements of the Clean Water Act.

"With permits issued solely by us without outside intervention, the typical 35-day process for applicants - if everything was perfect - now drops to 14," said Sanders. "So while the requirements will be as stringent, the process as a whole should be simpler for those looking to build responsibly in the City of Milton."
