Erosion Control and Environmental Management Training for Contractors

04/07/2014

The Kahnawà:ke Environment Protection Office (KEPO), in partnership with watershed management agency Abrinord, is offering a full day training session on Construction and Remediation Techniques when working in or near water. The session will take place near Tioweró:ton, in the community of Lantier on Wednesday, May 7, 2014.
 
Topics covered will include:

  • A review of the Kahnawà:ke Best Management Practices for Undertaking Work in and Around Water policy;
  • A discussion of strategies for reducing erosion and controlling sediment on project sites;
  • Ways to remediate watercourses that are experiencing erosion.
The day will be broken into a morning classroom session beginning at 9am, followed by an afternoon field visit to demonstration sites illustrating both successful construction projects and creek sections that may require additional work. A detailed agenda will be forwarded to all participants. Lunch will be provided.
 
Local contractors involved in construction activities in Kahnawà:ke and/or Tioweró:ton that may impact the environment or water resources of the Territory are strongly encouraged to attend. Car-pooling to Tioweró:ton can be arranged if requested.
 
Registration is free but space is limited. For complete details and to register please email patrick.ragaz@mck.ca or call KEPO directly at 450-635-0600. Deadline to register is Friday, April 25, 2014.
 
Without proper care, creek and wetland alteration can lead to costly on-going maintenance, flooding, erosion, loss of land and environmental damage.
