IECA Webinar Series






The International Erosion Control Association (IECA) is a non-profit, member organization that provides education, resource information and business opportunities for professionals in the erosion and sediment control industry.


Dedicated to educating its members, the IECA has announced their newest webinar series. Courses have been approved for professional development hours and will cover topics, such as low impact development and sediment control.

March 20th, 11:00 AM Mountain Time

Changing the Development Paradigm to Embrace Low Impact Development – Part One, Steven Trinkaus, PE, CPESC, CPSWQ


Part One- The Problem with Conventional Development & Stormwater Management: This webinar will investigate and demonstrate the many impacts, associated with our current approach of prescriptive land use policies and stormwater management that have led to adverse impacts to our natural environment, particularly aquatic systems due to “the law of unintended consequences” of these policies.

The webinar will also introduce attendees to the concept of Low Impact Development (LID), which is a paradigm shift in how development and stormwater is done to minimize the impacts of development on the natural environment. A history of LID will be provided as well as a discussion of how LID works and why it is a much better approach for land development projects.

PDH: One certificate is issued (to the registered participant), per paid registration. All levels are welcome to attend.

Members: $50 Non-Members: $65

April 17th, 11:00 AM Mountain Time

Changing the Development Paradigm to Embrace Low Impact Development – Part Two, Steven Trinkaus, PE, CPESC, CPSWQ


Part Two- The Basis of Low Impact Development: In this webinar attendees will learn about the most important aspect of Low Impact Development (LID), Environmental Site Design (ESD). ESD is the cornerstone of the LID approach by evaluating the natural resources on the site and placing the development on the land, which is most suitable for it.

The natural environment provides many positive benefits especially related to the rainfall runoff relationship. These many benefits will be discussed and it will be demonstrated how the application of ESD for residential development can preserve many of these benefits, while at the same time mimic the natural hydrologic relationship for small, frequent rainfall events.

The common hydrologic goals associated with LID will also be discussed and it will be shown how ESD can help a designer meet these goals. In addition to the hydrologic benefits of ESD, the preservation of woodlands and meadows also provide other environmental benefits such as the sequestering of carbon.

PDH: One certificate is issued (to the registered participant), per paid registration. All levels are welcome to attend.

Members: $50 Non-Members: $65

May 15th, 11:00 AM Mountain Time

The Evolution of Sediment Control Technology, Peter Hanrahan, CPESC


This course will focus on the ever expanding set of tools now available to assist with sediment control on active jobsites. While traditional approaches involved creative use of existing materials, newer solutions have been developed with specific problem solving as the focus. The goal of this session will be to provide immediately useful information to all who participate.

PDH: One certificate is issued (to the registered participant), per paid registration. This is an intermediate course.

Members: $50 Non-Members: $65

June 15th, 11:00 AM Mountain Time

The Evolution of Erosion Control Technology, Peter Hanrahan, CPESC


Erosion Control has been practiced throughout the history of civilization, but the most rapid advances have taken place over the past 50-60 years. This course will examine in detail today's toolbox for permanent erosion control solutions. This session will focus on expanding the erosion control toolbox of all who participate.

PDH: One certificate is issued (to the registered participant), per paid registration. This is an intermediate course.

Members: $50 Non-Members: $65
