Responsible Land Disturber (RLD)
Revisions to the Virginia Erosion and Sediment Control Law require, as a prerequisite to the approval of an erosion and sediment control plan, that the person responsible for carrying out the plan (owner/developer/permittee) shall provide to the plan approving authority the name of an individual holding a certificate of competence (Virginia Professional Engineer, Virginia Land Surveyor, Virginia Landscape Architect, Virginia Architect, Responsible Land Disturber) issued by the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) who will be responsible for carrying out the land disturbing activity. Please note that a contractor’s business license issued by the State or County does not satisfy the requirement for certification from DCR.
Every project that requires a building permit will require you to have a responsible land disturber application signed by an approved RLD. As Virginia licensed Land Surveyors we carry the RLD designation and can provide you with the signed RLD application along with your site plan.
