erosion & sedimentation control technical committee
The Erosion and Sedimentation Control Technical Committee was convened to provide recommendations for improving E&S management as part of the Etowah Aquatic HCP. The goal of all E&S control programs is superficially quite simple: keep dirt out of streams. In practice, however, this goal is very difficult to achieve. The approach of the Etowah Aquatic HCP E&S Control Technical Committee was to identify the best practices among the jurisdictions of the Etowah Basin and develop these into a "Standard Operating Procedure" for all participating counties and municipalities, in order to bring all jurisdictions to a higher level of erosion and sedimentation control.
