A188.8.131.52 Soil Protection
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
The effect of development on building sites is evaluated and the soil is protected by one or more of the following:
- Natural drainage patterns are evaluated and erosion controls are implemented to minimize erosion during construction and after occupancy.
- Site access is accomplished by minimizing the amount of cut and fill needed to install access roads and driveways.
- As allowed by other parts of the California Building Standards Code underground construction activities are coordinated to utilize the same trench, minimize the amount of time the disturbed soil is exposed and the soil is replaced using accepted compaction methods.
