From the DEQ Storm Water Update:
The State of Michigan recently changed a rule under its Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control (SESC) regulations (Part 91) to make it possible for a person conducting a transportation related project, authorized by a state or governmental agency within its jurisdiction or easement, to obtain a soil erosion permit in cases where the state or governmental agency does not control the project. Formerly, if a person was doing a transportation related project, authorized by a state or local government agency and within the jurisdiction of that agency, then the agency would have to obtain the soil erosion permit. Under the revised rule, the person doing the project can apply for the permit. The revision required a redefining of the term “landowner.”
The revision was made to Rule 323.1701 – Definitions, paragraph (e) also known as Part 17, Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control.
