Certified Erosion Prevention & Sediment Control Inspector Program

While erosion is a natural process, it can be dramatically accelerated by activities such as farming, timber harvesting and construction. Each year thousands of acres of land in South Carolina are exposed during the course of construction and land development. Everyone who lives in or visits South Carolina wants to enjoy clean and healthy waterways. But without properly installed protective practices during construction, the land is left vulnerable to erosion and sediment runoff.

The purpose of the Certified Erosion Prevention and Sediment Control Inspector (CEPSCI) Program is to educate field personnel on the proper installation, maintenance and inspection of erosion prevention and sediment control measures at construction sites. Preventing sediment-laden runoff not only protects our rivers, creeks and streams, but it is also a trademark of a quality construction project.
