Denver, Colo. – The International Erosion Control Association Region One (IECA) has received an education grant from the world’s largest retailer, Walmart, to develop online training content. The two‐year project will consist of creating ten to twelve modules within IECA’s educational tracks:
- Erosion and Sediment Control
- Stormwater Management
- Surface Water Restoration

This collaborative project represents a major contribution by IECA and Walmart for the development of content relative to issues related to erosion, sediment and stormwater management within the construction industry. The content will be written by professional members within IECA to meet the highest possible industry standards.
