Erosion and Sediment Control

Technical Paper

IECA's 2018 Technical Paper of the Year | Inspection and Data Collection Protocol to Monitor Performance of Biotic Soil Technology

Tuesday, February 13
9:10 AM - 10:10 AM

PDH: 1

Location: 103A

Level of Presentation: Intermediate

This presentation will introduce Biotic Soil Technology (BST) and offer prescribed testing protocol for site assessments to determine suitable BST, agronomic amendments and their rates prior to installation, inspection techniques during installation, monitoring post-installation vegetative species composition, density and cover as well as testing to document changes in soil chemistry, structure and biota over time. Case studies of projects from diverse ecosystems will serve as examples to demonstrate the prescribed testing protocol and results obtained.
