JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
14B-33-3324 The following language is adopted as a new Section 3324:
Added Coun. J. 4-10-19, p. 100029.
Amended Coun. J. 2-19-20, p. 14474.
Work sites shall be enclosed and secured by a continuous fence at least 6 feet (1829 mm) in height which shall be anchored to resist wind loads of 30 pounds per square foot (1436 Pa) without deflection of more than 3 inches (76.2 mm) between the top and bottom of the fence. The fence, including gates, shall be covered for its full height and length in fabric mesh that will allow the passage of air but contain dust and dirt. The owner and general contractor shall be responsible for keeping the fence and fabric mesh in good repair and free of graffiti and unauthorized advertising.
One gate, no larger than is reasonably necessary to allow truck access, may remain open when workers are actively working on the site.
All construction materials, dumpsters and debris collection devices shall be kept within the required fence unless a permit for use of the public way has been obtained from the Commissioner of Transportation. Dumpsters shall be regularly serviced to prevent contents from extending past the top of the dumpster. Construction materials and waste shall be gathered at the end of each work day and stored or disposed of in a neat and orderly manner. Where materials are stored for use on floors above grade, they shall be secured to prevent loosening or dispersion due to weather conditions or other phenomena.
The general contractor shall employ adequate wetting or other abatement measures to prevent the off-site dispersion of dust and debris from the work site. The general contractor shall take necessary steps to minimize the amount of dirt and debris that is transmitted by construction vehicles, including but not limited to stoning or paving of haul roads, wheel wash stations and street sweepers. All construction and demolition debris shall be removed from upper floors using dust-tight chutes or lowered in containers. Construction and demolition debris shall not be dropped or thrown from any floor. Where work occurs on a level that is four or more stories above grade plane, the work area shall be enclosed with fabric mesh as provided in Section 3324.2.
