2017 IECA – South Carolina Field Day Announced – September 28, 2017
The 2017 IECA Southeast Chapter Erosion & Sediment Control Training & Field Day in South Carolina will be held once again this year at TRI Environmental’s Denver Downs Research Facility in Anderson, SC, on Thursday, September 28.
In 2016, the even t attracted a record 250-plus attendees, vendors, and sponsors, and was a huge success! The theme of last year’s program was “New Products and Innovative Ideas,” and consisted of a morning session of technical presentations and an afternoon session of field demonstrations.
The morning technical sessions covered topics ranging from new uses for organic compost and soil amendments, to updates from SC-DHEC. 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 of over $3000 were donated to the IECA Southeast Chapter Scholarship Fund to enable students and young professionals to attend the IECA Annual Meeting.
