ECO-3 Protecting Our Soil, Water & Air
Certified Erosion & Sediment Control Lead (CESCL) Training & Site Supervision
Purpose of the Course
Starting in early 1997, WSDOT Contractors were required to designate and make known to the Project Engineer during pre-construction meetings the firm's Erosion & Sediment Control Leads (ESC Leads). These people will have the training to administer an active and effective construction site erosion and sediment control program. Certification as the ESC Lead is achieved by attending a WSDOT-approved course in Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Control. For information on the Spill Prevention contract requirements, go to the WSDOT Hazardous Materials web page.
Course Description and Objectives
Procedures will be presented for the design and implementation of Temporary Erosion and Sediment Control (TESC) plans. Practical examples, and WSDOT case studies will be utilized to stress the proper installation, maintenance, inspection, and removal of temporary erosion and sediment control Best Management Practices (BMPs). Upon completion of the course, students will be able to: 1) understand and implement the TESC, 2) direct the proper installation, inspection, maintenance, and removal of erosion and sediment control BMPs, 3) communicate effectively with contractors and resource agency personnel regarding erosion and sediment control, and 4) work in partnership with the above personnel to make modifications to TESC plans to enhance compliance with WSDOT erosion and sediment control requirements.
Re-certification is required every three years. The same course serves for both
