TxDOT- San Antonio District
Guidelines and Requirements For Utility Permits
Temporary Erosion Control and Permanent Revegetation
Temporary erosion control devices (such as silt fences, rock berms, soil retention blankets, etc.)
should be shown on the utility plans in areas where utility work will leave disturbed or loose soil
across/along creeks and streambeds, on steep slopes, or in environmentally sensitive areas
such as the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone. A TxDOT utility inspector may direct that such
devices be installed even when and where they are not shown on the plans. These areas must
be protected from erosion. In addition, permanent revegetation (at least 70% of normal
vegetation cover of the surrounding undisturbed area) must be accomplished by the
utility company/contractor before the utility work is considered acceptable and complete
by TxDOT.
Your attention to this matter will insure that you meet the federal requirements of the Federal
Clean Water Act and the requirements of TxDOT’s Utility Accommodation Policy.
