While erosion is a natural process, it is accelerated by construction activities. Each year, many acres of land in North Dakota are exposed during the course of construction and land development activities. Without properly installed protective practices before, during, and after construction, the land is left open for erosion and sediment runoff. Preventing sediment-laden runoff not only protects our rivers, lakes and streams, but it also promotes clean water and environmental stewardship.

The NDDOT Erosion and Sediment Control Construction course serves to educate and inform construction personnel on the regulations, specifications, erosion and sediment control measures, and SWPPP development that apply to and best serve construction personnel in effectively managing assigned construction projects. Topics include:

  • Regulations & Special Provisions
  • Temporary & Permanent Erosion & Sediment Control Measures
  • Project Management

Participants will receive a course binder with reference materials and they will need to bring (1) ND Standards & Specifications for Road and Bridge Construction and applicable Special Provisions and (2) a calculator.


Course Trainers are Matthew L. Stone, Ph.D., an assistant professor at North Dakota State University in the Department of Construction Management & Engineering; Matt Sperry, Environmental Review Section Leader with the NDDOT, Construction Services Division; and Patrick Schuett, an Environmental Scientist with the ND Department of Health, Environmental Health Section.

Brian Fuder, engineering training manager for Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI) at North Dakota State University will be the moderator.

Target Audience

The primary audience for this course consists of public and private roadway construction management and inspection personnel, contractors responsible for installing erosion & sediment devices and developing/implementing SWPPPs, and local government personnel.
