Erosion & Sediment Control

The Erosion and Sediment Control Division was set up to improve and protect Cobb County's urban soil and water resources by reducing the amount of erosion from urban development sites.

The Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission’s Urban Erosion and Sediment Control Program implements this through the use of best management practices (BMP's) as called for in the soil and water conservation law and delivered through soil and water conservation districts. The program educates erosion and sediment control professionals on urban BMPs and certifies professionals to meet Georgia's standards for land-disturbing activities.
