    Dirt Time: Back in the News

    Back in March, I went down to Redding to meet John and shoot a boatload of new footage for Season 3. We have a lot of new stuff planned, all of which we'll expand upon very soon.

    But while we were shooting, a local news crew came out to the college when we were filming our 'BigCover Up' Episode (Episode concept: Big Exposed Areas. Little Time. What do you do?) along with some new Silt Fence, and Hydromulch material. The piece that went to air is below:

    You don't see it in the piece, but we had some pretty cool gear from Express Blower and tonnes of great material from HydroStraw.

    Big thanks to Mike Mangus at Channel 7, Redding for the coverage! The station has been a great supporter of the college, and any additional coverage we can get for the very awesome ECTF is SO greatly appreciated!

    For more on the actual episodes, stay tuned to watchyourdirt.com!

    David Derrick Streambank Video

    Hi all,

    Here is a nice video from the Streambank StabilizationPhenomenon that is known as David Derrick. Lot's of good information here. The video takes place on the banks of Duck Creek and is a production of the City of Davenport.

    For those of you who do not know David Derrick, here's a quick listing of some of the projects he's been involved in. On a regular basis, David puts out a great email newsletter - chalk-full of information. If you're interested in streambank stabilization and erosion control in general, you should try and get on that mailing list. I won't post his email here (robots, crawlers, junk-mail, etc.), but do a quick google or send us a note (on the left) and we'll let you know how to get a hold of him and get on that list.

    Also, David contributes on a regular basis to this site, often posting PowerPoints of presentations he's done. There will be more in the coming weeks, but here is one presentation to get you started.

     

     

    Quick Note: This video is not a Dirt Time / BlinkWorks production. It's produced and owned by the city of Davenport. Posted with permission.

    Dirt Time in the News!

    Last year, when we filmed our Energy Dissipator episode, a news crew was on hand.  Anchor Mike Mangus and his crew were there to do a piece on the Shasta College Erosion Control Training Facility (ECTF).

    The ECTF is a fantastic resource for anyone involved in Erosion & Sediment control education within California.  It is basically a big erosion playground with hills, water, BMP material, trucks and toys.

    If you need a great place to do field training within California, you should give them a call.
