About the Program

These workshops are structured to educate and familiarize design professionals, contractors, and developers with the NC Sedimentation Pollution Control Act (SPCA), the rules implementing the Act, design standards for erosion and sedimentation control practices and standards, and elements that are necessary to submit and implement an erosion control plan. This comes to you directly from the source—the NC Division of Energy, Mineral, and Land Resources Land Quality Section and its partners providing you with the information you need to submit a plan and prevent soil erosion and sedimentation damage.

This fall our workshops will focus on considerations for protection of developing watersheds. Techniques will be discussed for establishing vegetation, dealing with extreme rain events, and converting to E&SC measures to permanent stormwater controls. Updates on DEMLR activities, including a new system for electronic permitting, will also be discussed.
