Every year, construction sites contribute tons of sediment into Wisconsin’s stormwater systems. As a result, environmental integrity is diminished. It’s important that contractors understand how to stay in compliance to avoid job shut-downs and penalties. Proper selection and installation of BMPs can save thousands of dollars in fines and re-installation costs.
NASECA-WI, a leader in erosion control and stormwater education, established a training program in 2010 to set baseline knowledge criteria for site workers who install and inspect erosion control practices on construction sites. Unlike most national training programs which provide just the basic principles of erosion control, this training program is Wisconsin-based and covers the principles of erosion and sediment control, as well as WisDNR, WisDOT, and DSPS rules, regulations, and standards.
