The 2017 IECA– South Carolina Group’s Training & Field Day – the Group’s 10th Annual Event – was held September 28th at TRI Environmental’s Denver Downs Research Facility in Anderson, SC.
The event attracted another record 250-plus attendees, vendors, and sponsors, and was a huge success! The event consisted of a morning session of technical presentations and an afternoon session of field demonstrations. The morning technical sessions covered topics ranging from updates on regulations and research to case histories of a dam outfall improvement and innovative river bank stabilization. The afternoon session provided a chance for vendors to show off their new products in field trial scenarios, and gave attendees the opportunity to see new and innovative erosion and sediment control products in action!
Attendees observed and discussed new silt fence technologies with graduated flow characteristics for challenging job sites, innovative anchoring systems for turf reinforcement matting, and installation techniques for unique floating skimmer designs. All attendees were awarded 6.5 PDH credits for their attendance, and valuable knowledge of innovative new products and ideas in the erosion and sediment control industry.
Net proceeds from the event are donated to the IECA-Southeast Chapter’s scholarship fund which makes it possible for deserving young professionals from the southeast to attend the annual IECA conference!
