This seminar is designed to give an analysis of the important considerations in developing a plan to control erosion and sediment runoff in the construction process and to ensure that soil stability is adequately addressed before and after the construction process.
- Mechanisms for structural erosion and sediment control
- Waterway protection
- Contractor techniques and practices
- Vegetation/soil movement
- The attendee will be able to discuss soil run-off during the construction process.
- The attendee will be able to identify an inspection checklist.
- The attendee will be able to review design considerations.
