  • IECA Releases New Standards 
  • The IECA Standards and Practices (S&P) Committee has developed new performance-based standards for the design, installation and maintenance of sediment control practices. The S&P Committee has adopted a process in the design of standards that includes a thorough review of existing guidance and literature prior to the development of new guidance as needed. The review process includes the development of a synthesis based on existing designer guidance from federal agencies (FHWA, NRCS, EPA, etc.) and various state highway and environmental agencies. In addition, research reports and peer-reviewed journals are reviewed to incorporate research findings into guidance development. After the development of the synthesis, gaps in existing guidance are identified. The committee develops new guidance based on existing literature, professional knowledge and experience of the subject matter.
