Inspector

Carl Menconi has taught erosion control certification courses in Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska since 2000. He has worked as a third-party inspector for King County projects, assisting contractors and the County to remain in compliance with NPDES permits, and consults with other contractors and public agencies to solve challenging stormwater compliance issues. In these roles Carl has trained and worked closely with hundreds of CESCLs, observing firsthand the conditions that enhance and hinder their performance. Carl came to the field of stormwater management from stream restoration and wilderness trail construction, and continues to work in those disciplines as a trainer and technical consultant. In addition to being a Washington CESCL, his certifications include CPESC (Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control) and CESSWI (Certified Erosion, Sediment, and Stormwater Inspector).

Live Presentations
Wednesday - 8:00AM (PST) - The Excellent CESCL
09/23/2020 at 9:00 AM (MDT)   |  60 minutes
09/23/2020 at 9:00 AM (MDT)   |  60 minutes Washington’s Construction Stormwater Permit requires that every permitted project have a Certified Erosion and Sediment Control Lead on board to help ensure permit compliance. Sometimes, though, CESCLs fall short of this goal, resulting in water quality violations and other stormwater problems. What impedes CESCLs from helping their project succeed in stormwater management, and how can they do better? CESCLs need knowledge of the job and the support of other workers, especially management. But they also need to be alert for clues of impending problems. These clues are all around, but are often not obvious. CESCLs will learn about skills and perspectives necessary to do an excellent job and make themselves a valuable asset to their company. Managers will learn the importance of the CESCL’s role, and how better to support it.
Wednesday - 9:10AM (PST) - International Arrivals Facility – Managing Erosion Control and Stormwater During Construction of SeaTac Airports Shining New Star.
09/23/2020 at 10:10 PM (MDT)   |  60 minutes
09/23/2020 at 10:10 PM (MDT)   |  60 minutes A look at the different erosion control and stormwater issues involved with the construction of a Billion dollar Design Build terminal expansion project.
Wednesday - 1:00PM (PST) Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Preventing Trackout
09/23/2020 at 2:00 PM (MDT)   |  60 minutes
09/23/2020 at 2:00 PM (MDT)   |  60 minutes You’ve used rock entrances, sweepers, tire baths and you still have sediment trackout violations. With so many options available, how do you decide which BMP to use? Seattle-Tacoma International Airport operates under a strict Industrial NPDES permit with construction stormwater effluent limits. To comply with the permit during construction, we implemented a “no visible trackout” policy in 2000. This presentation will summarize the lessons learned over the past 20 years. We will investigate rock entrances, hosing tires, tire baths, tire washes, sweeping, and various prevention methods. At the end of the presentation, you will be able to thoughtfully choose the right methods for minimizing and preventing sediment trackout from your project, how to specify them in a contract, how to inspect them, and how to adapt them to changing site conditions.
Thursday - 8:00AM (PST) - Sunset Side Slope Stabilization
09/24/2020 at 9:00 AM (MDT)   |  60 minutes
09/24/2020 at 9:00 AM (MDT)   |  60 minutes Washington is known as the "Evergreen State" and has acres of territory true to the emerald name. Vashon Island is one of its jewels: a tree covered island community in the Puget Sound known for sustainable farming practices and beautiful marine views and vistas. The topography and geography underfoot when enjoying the stunning views is unfortunately unstable wet ground prone to slides. Responding quickly to King County's request, Encore Environmental and GSI, Inc worked together to provide a slope stabilization solution for the west side of Vashon, the sunset side of the island.
Thursday - 9:10AM (PST) - WA State Construction and Industrial Stormwater General Permit Compliance
09/24/2020 at 10:10 AM (MDT)   |  60 minutes

Thursday - 1:00PM (PST) - Expecting the Unexpected: Managing Stormwater in a 100-Year Floodplain
09/24/2020 at 2:00 PM (MDT)   |  60 minutes
09/24/2020 at 2:00 PM (MDT)   |  60 minutes What happens when a contractor is on the way out, it rains 28 days in a row, and the soils onsite don’t infiltrate? A perfect storm - a stormwater management storm, that is. Located in the Duwamish Valley, adjacent to the Green River, this case study looks at the the events that lead to a site becoming inundated with floodwater, the steps taken to regain compliance, and how to plan for a better (drier) future.
