In conjunction with our development projects, DFI design engineers possess extensive experience with the preparation of Grading, Erosion and Sediment Control Plans. Plans are developed in accordance with County, State and Federal requirements to address the disturbance of earth associated with development activities. DFI design engineers routinely secure “Responsible Personnel Certifications” (formerly known as “Green Card”) through Erosion and Sediment Control training provided through the local Soil Conservation District offices. DFI manages all phases of the process including plan preparation, permit processing, survey stakeout, plan compliance certifications and completion of as-builts. DFI also prepares grading plans for mitigation of grading violations including meeting with the grading enforcement personnel as our clients representative.
Clark Station Road is a single family home located in Severn, Maryland. The project is an existing home situated on 2.59 acres of land. This site was placed under violation for clearing without a permit and was required to obtain a grading permit. DFI worked with the home owners and the county inspectors to delineate the area of violation and create a grading plan that would abate the violation at hand. DFI was able to do research to find what was originally cleared when the home was constructed and reduce the fines for the homeowner by providing additional information to the county inspectors showing that the violation was not as substantial as originally thought.
