Annual Erosion Control Training Summit

The two-day workshop is designed for people of beginning, intermediate or advanced erosion control experience. It will be extremely beneficial for stormwater prevention pollution plan (SWPPP) developers, reviewers, engineers, construction personnel, site inspectors, landscape contractors, and other water-quality professionals.

BMPs are the “tools of compliance.” How can stormwater plans truly become cost-effective without an in-depth understanding of the BMPs and BMP selection, including how and where they should be applied, how to install and how to repair? This training is focused on the practical, in-the-field, implementation and inspection of BMPs. Attendees will spend time both in the classroom and out in the field, spraying on hydromulch or helping to anchor Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs) or rolled erosion control products. Speaking of products, there will be a huge product exhibition, with manufacturers, developers, and distributers of erosion and sediment control products from around the nation. Many products will be demonstrated in the field and exhibit hall.
