The District recently held its first ever Construction Site Demonstration Day, featuring best management practices for erosion and sediment control.  More than 40 contractors, engineers, land managers, and inspectors listened to classroom instructions at the J. Roy Houston Conservation Center and then braved the pouring rain at a nearby construction site to learn about the proper installation and use of several lesser known erosion controls.

The Westmoreland Conservation District thanks the co-sponsors of this event:
