Who is a RLD and where can I find one?

In 2001, Virginia implemented the Responsible Land Disturber (RLD) certificate program in an effort to minimize erosion and sedimentation from projects within the Commonwealth. The certificate program is overseen by the State Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). The RLD is responsible for inspecting the erosion and sediment control measures, such as silt fence and construction entrances, at least once every five (5) business days AND within 24 hours of a measurable rain event. A measurable rain event is defined as 0.25” or more of rain.
