A Requirement for NSTIR Construction Contracts
As of 2000, the Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (NSTIR) has required contractors to have a Foreman/Supervisor who has attended this course present on-site on all highway construction jobs requiring earthwork.
The intent of this course is to raise awareness to the importance of erosion and sediment control as it relates to the potential impacts of various construction activities on the aquatic environment.
