The 2018 IECA State of the Industry
webinar will provide insight into the state of the International Erosion Control Association (IECA), a perspective on the industry shift to reducing environmental impact with biodegradable and reusable BMPs. This event will be moderated by Joanna Fetherolf, IECA’s Director of Education.
With a membership of over 2,000 professionals, IECA is the foremost professional organization for the field of erosion and sediment control and stormwater management. IECA’s mission is to provide education, networking, and research for industry professionals.
Thomas Schneider, CPESC,
2016 - 2018 IECA Board of Director President, will provide an update on the International Erosion Control Association in 2018.
Erosion Control/Stormwater Engineer, Port of Seattle. Dave will give a perspective on the environmental impact of your project. Silt fence fabric sent to the landfill; erosion products shipped thousands of miles to your project; products used once and thrown away. While trying to reduce the environmental impact of your project are you creating other, possibly greater impacts?
The erosion control industry has evolved such that it’s possible to design and construct projects that utilize 100% biodegradable, recyclable, pre-cycled and reusable best management practices, reducing project impacts and increasing project sustainability.
