2014 Revised Standard for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control in New Jersey


Updated Application Forms


***Power Point Presentation from Revised Standards for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control in New Jersey Seminar held on 3/13/14***


The adopted amendments to the Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Act Rules, N.J.A.C. 2:90-1 et seq., have gone into effect as of February 20, 2014. As a result of the adopted rules, a new version of the “Standards for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control in New Jersey” has also been implemented.

The new Standards must be utilized when submitting an application for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control to the Cape Atlantic Conservation District.

The Standards are also available on the NJ Department of Agriculture website  (

As a point of clarification, proposed amendments to the Standard for Topsoiling and the Standard for Land Grading were not adopted, therefore, the July 1999 version of those Standards remain in effect pending future changes pursuant to the Soil Restoration Act, P.L.2010, c.113.

In addition to changes in the Standards, the Application Form for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control, Data Base Summary form and Ownership Disclosure Affidavit form have also been revised.
