Developed by the IECA Standards and Practice Committee

The Standards and Practices (S&P) Committee has been convened by the IECA Board of Directors (BODs) to develop standards for the construction stormwater industry. The Board recognizes regional differences and even local differences in terminology and design of erosion and sediment control practices. However, the Board also recognizes that standardizing design based upon sound science, testing criteria for sediment controls, monitoring recommendations to provide feedback to site operators, and terminology will greatly advance the stormwater industry. For more information on this committee or participate please visit the committee page.

  • This Standard is intended to guide designers of a silt fence when used as a temporary sediment control barrier.

Erosion & Sediment Control Standard Terminology for the Stormwater Industry

Download IECA Glossary

This glossary is intended to provide standard definitions of commonly occurring erosion and sediment control practices and terms. Standard terms and definitions will provide a consistent reference for design standards and manuals, and ease communication within the erosion and sediment control industry.
