Annual International Erosion Control Association (IECA) Southeast Chapter – South Carolina
The 2017 IECA Southeast Chapter Erosion & Sediment Control Training & Field Day was held this year on September 28th, 2017 at TRI Environmental’s Denver Downs Research Facility in Anderson, SC. This was the 10th annual event hosted by the Southeast Chapter IECA at TRI Environmental. The event attracted over 250 attendees, vendors, and sponsors, and was a huge success!
The theme of this year’s program was “New Products and Innovative Ideas,” and consisted of a morning session of technical presentations and an afternoon session of field demonstrations. The morning technical sessions covered topics ranging from case studies from SCDOT to innovations is erosion and sediment control testing practices. The afternoon session provided a chance for vendors to show off their new products in field trial scenarios, and gave attendees the opportunity to see new and innovative erosion and sediment control products in action! Attendees observed and discussed new perimeter control technologies, innovative anchoring systems for sediment retention fiber rolls, silt fence technologies specializing in hydrocarbon removal, and rip-rap alternatives for outlet scour protection. All attendees were awarded 6.5 PDH credits for their attendance, and valuable knowledge of innovative new products and ideas in the erosion and sediment control industry.
The IECA Southeast Chapter would like to thank TRI Environmental for hosting, and the vendors, sponsors, and attendees of this year’s event for making it all possible. Stay tuned to IECA for information on the 2018 IECA Southeast Chapter Erosion & Sediment Control Training & Field Day!
