Severn River Watershed Code Change Reminder

As of January 1, 2019 the Anne Arundel Soil Conservation District will accept a professional engineer, professional land surveyor or a licensed landscape architect signature on the consultant’s certification on sediment and erosion control plans in the Severn River Watershed. Background A consultant’s certification on a sediment and erosion control plan verifies that the sediment and erosion control measures on the plan are adequate to contain the silt and erosion. For plans within the Severn Watershed, this was required to be signed by a Professional Engineer, even though a professional land surveyor and or licensed landscape architect could develop the plan. House Bill 766 changed this process so that a professional land surveyor and or licensed landscape architect could sign the certification. The AASCD Board of Supervisors consulted with the Severn River Watershed Commission and all parties agreed to the change. It received a favorable vote at the AASCD Board of Supervisors December meeting and will take effect on January 1, 2019. New Consultant Certification Form
