and advice in overseeing and reviewing compliance with soil erosion and sedimentation
control procedures and in reviewing existing or proposed earth changes, earth change plans, or site plans with regard to technical matters pertaining to soil erosion
and sedimentation control. In addition to or in the absence of such agreements, conservation districts may
perform periodic reviews and evaluations of the authorized public agency's, county enforcing agency's, or municipal enforcing agency's programs or procedures pursuant to standards and specifications developed in cooperation with
the respective districts and as approved by the department. These reviews and evaluations shall be submitted to the department for appropriate action.

in accordance with and subject to this part, the rules promulgated under this part, and any applicable local ordinance. If a person enters into an agreement with a conservation district, the conservation district shall notify the county enforcing agency or municipal enforcing agency or the department in writing of the agreement. Upon entering into the agreement under this subsection, a person is not subject to permits required under this part, but is required to develop project specific soil erosion and sedimentation control plans
and is subject to the remedies provided for in this part for violations of this part.
