Course Description:

This course provides an overview of erosion and sediment control (ESC) for typical municipal projects undertaken by municipal crews (e.g., streets, grounds, parks, sewer, water and storm), including a discussion of universal techniques, practices and principles of ESC. This course identifies appropriate best management practices (BMPs) and the Operations & Maintenance considerations of those BMPs.

A case studies section provides an opportunity to discuss BMP installation and removal.  This class does not meet the requirements of a Certified Erosion and Sediment Control Lead (CESCL) and is not a certification class.
