Site Grading Plan - Site Grading & Erosion Control
By Professional Licensed Engineers
Specializing in Municipal Engineering

The Site Grading and Erosion Control Plan prepared by our licensed professional engineers specializing in Municipal engineering will  
illustrate how the site will be graded to provide erosion protection during the construction phase; how the final grading will ensure positive
drainage away from all buildings; how the rainfall runoff will be directed to an approved outlet; and that the site grading is compatible with
the neighbouring properties. The site grading plan is to be implemented in a fashion to allow stormwater management to be implemented
using both the minor and major drainage systems. Improper grading of the lot can result in poor surface drainage, ponding or flooding
around the basement wall, foundation settlement or other damage, and basement dampness and other undesirable effects.

Site Grading Plan typically includes the following:
General Details All property lines, Ground floor plan for all buildings, if applicable All easements, and reserves
Site Circulation, General Parking, Accessible Parking and Driveways All adjacent roads and sidewalks
Public & Private Servicing Information The location of proposed utilities, transformers, gas regulators, air intakes/exhausts, garage access
stairs on the site and on adjacent road allowances  
Proposed roof control devices location, type, control release rates and corresponding storage volumes for flat roof portions UV treatment
facilities and/or oil grit separators Storage facilities and dimensions/details for rainwater harvesting and reuse (e.g. Cisterns)
Landscaping, Grading & Retaining Walls and Lighting  - All retaining walls  General grading information including the existing and proposed
elevations at  6m intervals along property lines, driveways, sidewalks and walkways and trees to be preserved, including all trees on
adjacent properties within 6 m of subject site’s property/lot lines Proposed elevation at 6 m intervals along all building and structure
perimeters and building entrances Storm and surface water drainage directions, site ponding limits with corresponding control volumes and
control facilities, major overland and emergency overland flow routes Soil retention and/or replacement details
Sediment and erosion control measures applied during construction Location and identification of trees protected under City by-laws
Location of tree protection zones (where trees are being retained & protected) Tree protection plan notes (where trees are being retained
& protected) Buried watercourses, if applicable
An apron of no less than 2% slope, and a minimum width of 2 to 4 metres is required around all building envelopes.  In areas where the
soils have a minimum percolation rate of 15mm/hour, and the swales are being implemented as a storm water quality management feature,
the minimum slope may be reduced to 1% in some areas. Swales to be designed to convey the 4 hour-25mm Chicago storm and maintain
a velocity less than or equal to 0.5 m/s. The treatable flow length must be maximized to provide for proper pretreatment of flows. Check
dams should be implemented to enhance pretreatment and provide additional infiltration for baseflow enhancement, where applicable.

Our licensed professional engineers specializing in Municipal Engineering prepare thorough, detailed, and clear Site Grading
Plans to suit the client's needs while also adhering to design requirements of the municipality and submit to the Municipality

  • Additional erosion control measures may be required as site development progresses. Contractor to provide all additional erosion
    control structures.
  • Erosion control structures to be monitored regularly by (Owners Representatives Name) and any damage repaired immediately.
    Sediments to be removed when accumulations reach a maximum of one third (1/3) the height of the silt fence.

    restoration of vegetative ground cover.
  • The Contractor is responsible for removing sediments from the municipal roadway and sidewalks at the end

  • Mud mats to be provided on site at all locations where construction vehicles exit the site. Mud mats shall be a minimum of 3 m wide,
    15 m long (length may vary depending on site layout) and 0.3 m deep and shall consist of 200 mm clear stone material or approved
    equivalent. Contractor to ensure all vehicles leave the site via the mud mat and that the mat is maintained in a manner to maximize its
