Event Description:
Join Clean Lakes Alliance to learn more about the issues that impact our lakes. About the talk: Dane County’s Science-based Approach to Regulating Construction Site Erosion Since 1995 Dane County has implemented performance and science based erosion control standards on construction sites. Jeremy Balousek will discuss the advantages of using performance based requirements and how the county uses factors such as rainfall energy, soil types, slopes, and other site conditions to model the potential soil loss from construction sites. He will show how Dane County sets and implements performance standards based on the potential soil loss to limit the amount of soil that may leave a construction site. Examples of the success and lessons learned from this approach will be presented. About the speaker: Jeremy Balousek, P.E., is the Water Resource Engineering Division Manager for the Dane County Land and Water Resources Department in Madison, Wisconsin. In his position he is responsible for leading the implementation of the countywide erosion control and stormwater management programs. Mr. Balousek received his B.S. and M.S in Soil and Water Engineering from the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

What Others Have Said

  • Kudos to the Chamber and the Small Business Advisory Council for the creation of the Road Construction Survival Guide. It connects the affected businesses with the city departments and the construction company in charge. The regular meetings and contact with the correct people makes a huge difference in coping.

  • My small business has a voice in local politics with the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, I have a voice here. We’re all business people and we look at the bottom line. The return on investment from my Chamber membership and the advocacy it provides is far above what I get from other organizations.

  • The Chamber has worked tirelessly to promote the interests of the local business community, and to create and preserve the conditions that allow businesses to thrive, for the good of the entire community. I can think of no organization that is better equipped to guide us through this time than the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, and we all owe it our full support, to our mutual benefit.
