Our Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control (SESC) Program strives to protect the waterways of Washtenaw county and beyond. This program assures the appropriate design and execution of SESC measures during earthmoving activities within the county.
Sediment is the greatest pollutant by volume impacting our lakes, streams, and wetlands. Sediment is the product of uncontrolled erosion. Construction is one of the major causes of erosion in Michigan.
