Soil erosion contributes to the impairment of drainage-ways, increases road and storm sewer maintenance costs, contributes to the destruction and obstruction to traveled roadways creating a potential hazard for vehicular traffic, and contributes to contamination and degradation of land surfaces and streams, flooding and dusty conditions.
The City of Marshalltown has an application for Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Control (CONESCO). Before any land disturbance activities can begin, an application, application fee, and supporting documentation must be submitted, reviewed and an erosion control permit issued.
The City of Marshalltown requires one of the following permits based on the extent of the land disturbing activity.
