Construction sites should implement a stabilized entrance, commonly referred to as a ‘rock entrance,’ in multiple cases:
- Where dirt or mud can be tracked onto roads
- If they’re adjacent to water bodies
- If they have poorly compacted soil
- Where dust is a problem during dry weather
The City of Kearney has detailed specifications on rock entrances in the Public Works Department link at the sediment and erosion control details page.
Construction Stormwater Management
Minimum Control Measure (MCM) #4 of the Stormwater Management Plan
The purpose of this MCM is to reduce pollutants in stormwater runoff from construction activities that result in land disturbance. An Erosion and Sediment Control program is being followed and an ordinance has been enacted within the City Code. Design standards meeting the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) and the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit requirements are available on the City website. There are Erosion and Sediment Control best management practices (BMPs) for a construction site no matter what the size.
