Erosion & Sediment Control: Compliance at a Fraction of the Cost

Description:Erosion & Sediment Control practices throughout BC have evolved very quickly in the last few years. With clear performance objectives, increased enforcement, and innovative practices and products, many sites are finally achieving and maintaining compliance. Designers, reviewers, monitors, and contractors alike are working together to devise and implement plans that work. These plans need not be any more expensive, they simply use the resources more effectively. However, there is increasing disparity between those areas aggressively enforcing ESC compliance, and those still doing 'business as usual'. This presentation will focus on: Understanding the regulatory regime and performance criteria for ESC. Reviewing the fundamental processes that impact ESC performance. Introducing new approaches, practices, and methodologies to ensure compliance. Erosion & Sediment Control - Compliance at a Fraction of the Cost will discuss the state of the industry relating to erosion and sediment control. It will highlight measures being implemented across the province from a regulatory and enforcement perspective, as well as from a municipal works perspective. It will review many of the approaches being implemented on sites that work. By applying many of the lessons learned, we can now establish the benchmark for appropriate erosion and sediment controls within your municipality.
