The City of Airdrie follows the City of Calgary guidelines for erosion and sediment control. We monitor construction sites regularly to limit short and long-term effects on our existing infrastructures and our local ecosystem.
Developers and consultants conducting work within the city are required to submit erosion control plans. The plan must outline the methods and steps the developer will take to ensure deleterious material from the construction site is prevented from entering storm systems.
Engineering Services works closely with developers and contractors to minimize adverse effects of mud and dust.
During construction, we require:
- A water truck to assist with dust control
- Developers and contractors to prevent mud tracking onto roadways whenever possible
- Developers to limit construction access to defined locations
- Street cleaning to be completed when required
