Do I Really Own This? Perspectives of a Large Project Owner | Janet Kieler - Director of Environmental Programs at Denver International Airport. This keynote will focus on unique erosion control challenges faced today by the City and County of Denver's Department of Aviation, owner and operator of Denver International Airport (DEN). DEN is a unique property. At 53-square miles it is the second largest airport in the world and the biggest in the United States at almost twice the size of its domestic runner up, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. As the last major international airport built in the US, and one that was designed to remove the space constrains posed by the former airport, the land disturbance associated with original construction was massive and largely uncontrolled, given the pre-permitting era in which it was built. Now, after opening its doors more than two decades ago, the culture of ownership around the built environment is making its way to the unbuilt environment and bringing renewed success to land management practices.
Free to IECA Members! This presentation will take an inside look at the 1st edition of CSA/W202, Erosion and Sediment Control Inspection and Monitoring, to showcase how best practices were harmonized to create a national set of minimum requirements. It will highlight the ability of the standard to streamline project administration and eliminate guess work, and how such requirements lend themselves well to incorporation in to contracts and permits. Finally, the presentation will touch on efforts to drive uptake, plans for future ESC standards, as well as the various aspects of CSA/W202 that might serve as a model for future standardization efforts in the U.S. and elsewhere.
