Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) Practices are required to be employed at construction sites in all of the Bay states. In 2007, the USWG approved sediment and nutrient reduction rates for ESC practices. At the time, the expert panel process was limited to research studies that had been conducted prior to 1995, and had no data on nutrient loadings from construction sites, or any corresponding reductions achieved by ESC practices. The panel noted in its report that they had low confidence in their findings due to the limited available research, and that the relatively low rates reflected a discount due to real world issues related to poor installation and maintenance of practices.
Since that time, all of the Bay states have strengthened their ESC regulations and construction general permits, improved their ESC technology, and developed more effective compliance and enforcement methods at construction sites. In early 2014 the Enhanced ESC Expert Panel recommendations were accepted by the WQGIT. Join us for a webcast on the Panel’s recommendations and learn how to take this credit toward meeting your Bay TMDL allocations.
