Don't Let Your CESCL Designation Expire

Is your Certified Erosion and Sediment Control Lead (CESCL) designation about to expire? The Department of Ecology requires a CESCL on all stormwater permitted construction sites over an acre, and CESCL certifications must be renewed every three years with a one-day class. Designed for residential builders, BIAW’s CESCL recertification course will answer the most-asked builder questions, including what BMPs perform best on construction sites, how to keep those BMPs working, what red flags signal erosion problems, and how to effectively work with local and state inspectors. This course will also walk you through the planning and execution of erosion control in a subdivision.

How to Find Qualified CESCL Workers

The Certified Erosion and Sediment Control Lead (CESCL) is trained to inspect, install, and manage stormwater controls on your site. Because Ecology requires the CESCL to be on-call or on-site at all times, most companies will need more than one certified employee or may hire a CESCL to assist with specific projects. BIAW has compiled a list of Certified Erosion and Sediment Control Leads that are available for hire.
