NASECA-WI Annual Conference & Trade Show
Overview of Event
Each year, typically in early February, NASECA-WI hosts the state’s largest event focused solely on erosion control and stormwater management. This two-day conference is divided into an erosion & sediment control focus (day 1) and a stormwater focus (day 2) so you can attend one day or both to suit your interests. NASECA-WI strives to offer topics that enhance attendees professional development including a mix of regulatory topics, best management practices, project reviews, and other industry information. We are excited to offer a trade show component to the annual conference in order to give attendees the opportunity to learn more about the products and services they use every day. The Annual Conference & Trade Show offers up to 10 CE for full conference registration, which may apply toward PE requirements, in addition to 1 credit hour of professional conduct and ethics. Continuing education offered may be submitted for credit toward Wisconsin’s Department of Safety & Professional Services credentials including: Commercial Building Inspector, Dwelling Contractor Qualifier, Journeyman Plumber Restricted Service, Master Plumber Restricted Service, Utility Contractor, and UDC Construction Inspector.

Stream Bank Stabilization in Agriculture by Wesley Kotila and Jeremy Freund
The Plum and Kankapot Creek watersheds are subwatersheds of the Lower Fox River Watershed (TMDL watershed). Plum and Kankapot Creek are two of the highest contributors of sediment and phosphorus to the Lower Fox River. Agriculture is a major contributing factor in these watersheds. This presentation will focus on the streambank stabilization projects that are being used to work towards the TMDL goal. These projects include a 2-stage channel and habitat components not typical for the project area.
