Erosion and Sediment Control is a crucial component of the environmental protection on any construction project.  However, as a requirement imposed with clear performance expectations decades ago, ESC remains a science and an art practiced without the appropriate training, support, regulation, enforcement and rigor.

The industry has advanced in enormous strides in the last few years.  Progressive enforcement is mandating compliance, yet designers, installers, inspectors, contractors and approving agencies are all struggling to achieve results efficiently and effectively.   Training and sharing of best practices will help prepare any practitioner for the challenges and opportunities that the Erosion and Sediment Control Industry represents.

Find out how to consistently meet the governing guidelines, regulations, and bylaws, using fundamental concepts and approaches, and save yourselves and your clients the time, money, and frustration.  Learn how to do ESC right!
