Alabama Technology Transfer Center to Host Erosion & Sediment Control Learning Opportunities

In an effort to improve environment compliance and water quality, the Alabama Technology Transfer Center at Auburn University is hosting 2 separate training events designed to provide education to contractors on implementation tools and installation techniques  for efficient and effective erosion and sediment controls on both vertical and horizontal construction.

The Erosion & Sediment Control Hands-On Field Installer Workshop will be hosted November 16-17 for field personnel responsible for  the installation of construction site erosion and sediment control practices.  This workshop involves both classroom instruction and a practical, hands-on experience.
