IECA Names Dwayne Stenlund, Environmental Connection 2016 Presenter of the Year
Denver, Colo. – International Erosion Control Association Region One (IECA) awards its Environmental Connection 2016 Presenter of the Year to Dwayne Stenlund, CPESC for his presentation “Developing Best Management Practice Guidance Matrix Decision Trees,” which had over 50 attendees and presented on two days at conference.
“I am pleased to be the winner of this respected award. My presentation helped participants understand the performance limits of BMPs for developing an accurate and complete SWPPP and how to implement successful BMP program delivery outcomes,” says Stenlund.
“The class program, drawn from many of my experiences, was developed to help professionals develop an example matrix of one family of standard practice with scaling outcome expectation, where cheap is not the best, review several completed matrices and apply this knowledge using developed BMP decision matrices,” concludes Stenlund.
