Kathleen Harrison to Present at Master Class for the Western Chapter of the International Erosion Control Association

Kathleen Harrison, P.G. QSP, QSD, QISP, ToR, REA, (California) will present on Regulatory and Post-Fire Assessment at the Master Class in Erosion and Sediment Control with Post-Fire Remediation and Field Demonstrations at the Quail Hill Community Center in Irvine, California, February 2–3, 2022.

Environmental consultant Mike Harding will be principal instructor at the event. He and Andrew Earles of Wright Water Engineers will join Kathleen, presenting on a number of topics.

Kathleen Harrison is a Principal Geologist with more than 30 years of experience focused on watershed management, stormwater pollution prevention, and erosion control and is a significant contributor to water resource projects across the United States. Kathleen's clients depend upon her in-depth understanding of industrial, construction, and municipal National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) compliance, permitting regulations, and stormwater best management practices. She has managed post-fire mitigation for over fourteen large fire events in the southwest United States, including the devastating 2007 San Diego County fire storm. To advance the state of the practice, Kathleen develops and teaches training courses related to post-fire mitigation, NPDES compliance, erosion, and sediment controls. She has been a senior reviewer or lead author on numerous water quality technical reports, jurisdictional urban runoff management plans, and storm water monitoring plans for industrial, municipal, and construction clients.

The Master Class is a two-day course offering advanced training on erosion and sediment control and storm water management, a group planning session for areas affected by wildfire, and a focus on post-fire hazard assessment and remediation, including the specification and application of sustainable management practices (SMPs) as they apply to wildfire affected areas. The afternoon of the second day will include field demonstrations on the application and installations of SMPs at the Orange County Great Park.

The Western Chapter-International Erosion Control Association (WC-IECA) invites consultants, contractors, engineers, agencies, developers, manufacturers, suppliers, academics, and other practitioners interested in effective and economical methods of erosion and sediment control to work toward improved water and air quality, environmental restoration, and land stewardship. This chapter serves members located in Arizona, Hawaii, Nevada, and California.
