Summer Erosion Control Workshop - Richmond

Training Overview:

Sediment is the world’s #1 pollutant. During storms, disturbed soils erode and wash into streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands, threatening drinking water, fish and wildlife, and recreational uses. This workshop teaches techniques for preventing and controlling erosion and supports a favorable quality of life in Vermont. Materials and practices for controlling sediment and designing and installing effective long-term erosion control solutions will be displayed and presented. These field days are a unique combined effort between the private and public sectors to share information and promote a better understanding of the latest erosion control tools and techniques. The goal is to provide information that is immediately useful to all who attend.
