About the Program
These workshops are structured to educate and familiarize design professionals with the NC Sedimentation Pollution Control Act (SPCA), the rules implementing the Act, design standards for erosion and sedimentation control BMPs and elements that are necessary to submit an erosion control plan. This comes to directly from the source-the NC Division of Land Resources Land Quality Section and its partners providing you with the information you need to submit a plan and prevent pollution by sedimentation.
The workshops will focus on considerations for project layout and protection of developing watersheds. Techniques will be discussed for conveyance of runoff, sedimentation control measures and establishment of ground cover. Design software for erosion and sedimentation control measures will be demonstrated.
Must be made on your own.
