Canada’s National Erosion and Sediment Control Inspection Standard: A Model for North America?
This presentation will take an inside look at the 1st edition of CSA/W202, Erosion and Sediment Control Inspection and Monitoring, to showcase how best practices were harmonized to create a national set of minimum requirements. It will highlight the ability of the standard to streamline project administration and eliminate guess work, and how such requirements lend themselves well to incorporation in to contracts and permits. Finally, the presentation will touch on efforts to drive uptake, plans for future ESC standards, as well as the various aspects of CSA/W202 that might serve as a model for future standardization efforts in the U.S. and elsewhere.
