Projects Under One Acre

In all Huntingdon County townships, projects with more than 5,000 square feet, but less than 1 acre of earth disturbance are required to submit a plan for Erosion & Sedimentation Control (E&S Plan) to the HCCD for review and approval before starting work. Please take a moment to download our application form with instructions, and to use any of the other resource links provided below to help you complete your application & plan. Remember to always keep a copy of your submitted E&S plan for yourself and to keep a copy on site while you are working.

* Your Municipality may require items such as grading or building permits prior to the start of any work.  Please check with your municipality before beginning any new construction project.

Items needed for an Erosion & Sedimentation Control Plan submittal to HCCD:


  • Erosion & Sedimentation Control Plan 2017 Application Form.  Please note, as of 3/1/17 previous versions of this application will no longer be accepted.
  • For small projects, prepare small project applications using this document. It provides guidance for homeowners to develop acceptable Erosion and Sedimentation Control plans. The HCCD reserves the right to determine whether or not the use of this guide is acceptable for any given project. If you would like further assistance from the Conservation District, we recommend contacting our office and speaking with the E & S Technician.


  • In Pennsylvania, homeowners and contractors are required to contact PA 1 Call at least three business days before beginning any digging or excavation project. In 2006, the PUC ordered all local telecommunications carriers to fully implement 8-1-1 as the abbreviated dialing code to access PA 1 Call. For more information see
