Notification for Assembling Storm Water and Erosion Control Technical Standard Work Team

Volunteer technical experts are needed to serve on a technical standard Work Team to revise an existing Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) technical standard related to storm water and erosion control. The work team will revise 1057, Stone Tracking Pad and Tire Washing, described below. Criteria for the standard will be based on existing science, be protective of the waters of the state, and conform to existing laws and regulations.

1057 Stone Tracking Pad and Tire Washing

The Work Team will revisit the standard’s means of reducing off-site sedimentation through prevention, minimization, and timely clean-up of sediment tracked by vehicles leaving construction sites. The update is intended to consider new technologies, changes in construction practices, project phasing, and other aspects of construction sites that may affect the criteria in this standard.   Individuals with experience constructing, designing (subdivision or commercial), maintaining, inspecting, studying, testing, or using devices to eliminate tracking of sediment from construction sites are encouraged to apply.

Custodian: WDNR

Team Leader: Amy Minser, WDNR

Proposed Timeline: July 2017 – August 2018

Team Process

This update is being undertaken via the Standards Oversight Council Full Process.  The team will consist of 8-12 individuals who have the technical expertise described above. Individuals offering substantial experience and a broad statewide perspective are preferred to optimize team efficacy and the quality of the final product. Team members are expected to attend all meetings, which typically last 6 hours and are as frequent as monthly. Additionally, 1-3 hours of work (e.g., research, writing) may be requested between meetings.

Individuals with these qualifications and who have an interest in participating in the full team process should submit a letter of interest with a short summary of their experience to the SOC Program Manager at by Friday, May 26 to be considered for the team. Team members will be notified of their acceptance on the team by Friday, June 2. The first team meeting is expected to occur in late July.
