subch. I of ch. SPS 360 Subchapter I — Introduction
SPS 360.01 SPS 360.01 Purpose. The purpose of this chapter is to establish uniform standards and criteria for the design, installation and maintenance of erosion and sediment control practices at building construction sites and minimum performance standards for post construction storm water management on building sites under the authority of ch. 101, Stats., so as to protect the waters of the state.
SPS 360.01 Note Note: Other agencies may have regulations that may affect the site design and construction activities for a building. The regulations may necessitate additional administrative procedures or inspections for compliance with such regulations.

SPS 360.04 SPS 360.04 Definitions. In this chapter:
SPS 360.04(1) (1) "Control practice" means a method or device implemented to prevent or reduce erosion or the resulting deposition of soil or sediment.
SPS 360.04(2) (2) "Land disturbing construction activity" means any man-made alteration of the land surface resulting in a change in the topography or existing vegetative or non-vegetative soil cover, that may result in storm water runoff and lead to an increase in soil erosion and movement of sediment. Land disturbing construction activity includes clearing and grubbing, demolition, excavating, pit trench dewatering, filling and grading activities.
SPS 360.04(3) (3) "Municipality" means any city, village, town or county in this state.
SPS 360.04(4) (4) "Owner" means any person or legal entity holding fee title, an easement or other interest in property that allows the person to undertake land disturbing construction activity.
SPS 360.04(5) (5) "Stabilized" means the condition where vegetation is established or other practices are in place on exposed soil surfaces so as to reduce erosion.
SPS 360.04(6) (6) "Storm water management plan" means a comprehensive plan designed to reduce the discharge of pollutants from storm water, after the site has undergone stabilization, following completion of the construction activity.
SPS 360.04(7) (7) "Waters of the state" has the meaning given in s. 283.01 (20), Stats.
SPS 360.04 Note Note: Under s. 283.01 (20), Stats., "waters of the state" means those portions of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior within the boundaries of Wisconsin, all lakes, bays, rivers, streams, springs, ponds, wells, impounding reservoirs, marshes, water courses, drainage systems and other surface water or groundwater, natural or artificial, public or private within the state or under its jurisdiction, except those waters which are entirely confined and retained completely upon the property of a person.

SPS 360.10(1) (1) Municipal ordinances. Pursuant to s. 101.1206 (5m), Stats., a municipality may continue to administer and enforce a local ordinance related to erosion and sediment control at building sites where land disturbing construction activities are to occur if the ordinance meets all of the following conditions:
SPS 360.10(1)(a) (a) The ordinance standards are more stringent than the standards of this chapter.
SPS 360.10(1)(b) (b) The ordinance was in effect on January 1, 1994.
SPS 360.10(2) (2)Municipal authority. Nothing in this chapter shall prevent a municipality from any of the following:
SPS 360.10(2)(a) (a) Instituting administrative erosion and sediment control requirements such as plan review, permitting or inspecting and the associated fees to cover the costs of those requirements.
SPS 360.10(2)(b) (b) Implementing erosion and sediment control requirements that are more stringent than the standards of this chapter when directed by an order of the United States environmental protection agency or by an administrative rule of the department of natural resources under s. NR 151.004.
SPS 360.10(2)(c) (c) Regulating erosion and sediment control for sites that are not under the scope of this code.

For example: farm buildings, buildings on Indian reservations or buildings owned by the federal government are not buildings under the scope of this chapter. Erosion control and storm water management standards enacted by municipalities, the Department of Natural Resources or the U.S. Environmental Protect Agency may apply in these cases.
SPS 360.10(3) (3)DNR authority. This code shall not be construed to affect the authority of the department of natural resources to enforce chapters 281 and 283, Stats., and administrative rules promulgated there under.
