Sediment Control alone is ineffective.
When controlling erosion,
established vegetation is more effective than no vegetation,
natural vegetation is more effective than established vegetation.
Soil that stays on top doesn't have to be caught at the bottom.
One cannot remove sediment from flowing water.
One can remove flowing water from sediment.
Doubling the of water increases...
its by four times,

the of soil being transportaed by 32 times, and

the of the particle being carried by 64 times.
A contractor will build it how you want it, when you want it if you pay him enough and let him know the expectations up front.
we are continually sending messages - good or bad.
We had forgotten what BMP stands for.

1972 - Clean Water Act
Objective - to and maintain the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the Nation's waters.
National Goal - eliminate the discharge of pollutants into navigable waters by 1985.

National Goal - achieve water quality that provides protection of fish, shellfish and wildlife and recreation by 1983.
Course Objectives
Be reminded of the objective and goals of the Clean Water Act.

Understand fundamental truths about construction stormwater management.

Learn a common sense approach to effectively and economically manage construction stormwater.
so that you might give it a try and increase your opportunities to experience success.
