Jerald S. (Jerry) Fifield has more than 30 years of experience in methods used for reducing sediment and erosion on construction sites. Educated as an engineer at Utah State University, he is a Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC), a registered professional hydrologist (PH), and a Certified Inspector of Sediment and Erosion Control (CISEC). He has authored numerous papers and taught hundreds of courses on the subject, training thousands of professionals in how to design and review effective sediment and erosion control plans for construction sites. Those who have benefited from his experience include designers, planners, engineering firms, contractors, inspectors, developers, municipalities, counties, and state and federal agencies, as well as the general public.
