WVC 19 - 1 B- 2 §19-1B-2. Legislative findings, intent and purpose of article.

The Legislature hereby finds that some activities associated with the commercial harvesting of timber results in the exposure of soil and that, if uncontrolled, such exposed soil can erode resulting in gullying, soil slippages and sediment deposition in streams.

It is the policy of this state to strengthen and extend the present sediment control activities of this state by implementing operator licensing, logger certification and logging operations notification programs through the division of forestry.
