How can a contractor remove an erosion control fence during construction?

The simple answer is "once groundcover is established."  However, this may happen in stages during construction.  While placing perimeter sidewalk on a site is a good example of when this occurs. The boundary silt fence initially installed prior to sale of the lot can be subject to a considerable amount of abuse.  Because maintenance of the erosion control fence is a requirement, contractor's typically are instructed to removed the unsightly - unkept silt fence - seed and straw the perimeter between the road and the newly installed sidewalk.  As shown below, this is a case where the approach works very well.  The new sidewalk is above the site and any transport in sediment is directed towards an existing grading area on the single lot.
