In 2015 INDOT adopted the trial Quality Control Temporary Erosion and Sediment Control RSP (Recurring Special Provision) 205-R-261, used only on a select few contracts in calendar year 2015.
The INDOT Standards Committee recently adopted an update to this RSP that will become effective on Sept. 1, 2016. INDOT will use the revised RSP on all contracts and increase the responsibilities of temporary erosion control management by the contractor. The new specification language includes a contractor-provided Storm Water Quality Manager (SWQM). The SWQM is responsible for implementing the Storm Water Quality Control Plan (including SWPPP if required), inspections and reporting. There are two SWQM qualification levels. Level One must have successfully completed INDOT’s Storm Water Management Training course. Level Two includes Level One requirements and a national erosion control inspector certification such as the CESSWI (Certified Erosion, Sediment and Storm Water Inspector provided by Envirocert) or CISEC (Certified Inspector of Sediment and Erosion Control).
ICI hosted a CESSWI exam review course in the spring of 2015. To prepare for the RSP in all contracts after September 1, we’re hosting two courses – Tuesday, June 14 in Logansport or Thursday, June 23 in Bloomington.
