Erosion caused by stormwater runoff from construction and development activities is a major source of pollution in our local waterways. To report erosion and sediment problems, call the NC Department of Environment & Natural Resources STOP MUD Hotline at 1-866-STOPMUD (786-7683) if you observe any erosion or sedimentation problems in Butner to report them to NC DENR.
The Town’s erosion prevention and sedimentation control is managed by the state’s Erosion and Sedimentation Program under the North Carolina Sedimentation Pollution Control Act of 1973. Requirements for erosion and sediment controls are codified in 15A NCAC Chapter 4. The state also provides the North Carolina Erosion and Sediment Control Planning and Design annual, which offers details and procedures for developing site-specific erosion and sedimentation control plans in accordance with the Sedimentation Pollution Control Act and the administrative rules.
The Town has added information on its website for the public to notify the appropriate authorities of observed erosion and sedimentation problems by promoting the existence of the NCDENR, Division of Land Resources “Stop Mud” hotline. The hotline is being promoted via the Town’s public education program activities described in the Public Education and Outreach section.
