Agricultural Erosion & Sedimentation Plan (Ag E&S Plan)
Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Chapter 102 regulations require a written Ag E&S plan for all agricultural plowing and tilling activities greater than 5,000 square feet. This includes Animal Concentration Areas (ACAs) larger than 5,000 square feet. Ag E&S Plans are required for No - Till operations as well.
The plan must limit soil loss from accelerated erosion to the soil loss tolerance (T). The plan must contain additional BMPs for fields within 100' of a stream. An Ag E&S plan is required to contain maps and an implementation schedule for BMPs.
