The pollutants generated by construction activities cause numerous detrimental side effects to the environment. Limiting a project's effect on soil erosion, waterway sedimentation and airborne dust generation will make valuable impacts on our planet. In this course, the presenter will guide the audience through initial planning efforts for erosion and sediment control and introduce selection and installation techniques for commonly used best management practices.
