Techniques for Effective Beach & Shoreline Stabilization • Part One

Module one discusses the components of the coastal system and explains longshore transport, tidal inlet processes, the causes of erosion and offers a variety of engineering solution to address these problems. Shoreline armoring methods (which can include a multitude of such engineering solutions as vertical sheet pile bulkheads or seawalls, revetments, geotextile structures, and other forms of armoring) are discussed, along with structural designs intended to protect the shoreline, such as groins and breakwaters. Examples of the variety of these types of structures, the materials that are used, and their application are discussed, outlining their function and potential adverse impacts as well as the benefits that they can provide.

Techniques for Effective Beach & Shoreline Stabilization • Part One & Part Two

Module one discusses the components of the coastal system and explains longshore transport, tidal inlet processes, the causes of erosion and offers a variety of engineering solution to address these problems. Shoreline armoring methods (which can include a multitude of such engineering solutions as vertical sheet pile bulkheads or seawalls, revetments, geotextile structures, and other forms of armoring) are discussed, along with structural designs intended to protect the shoreline, such as groins and breakwaters. Examples of the variety of these types of structures, the materials that are used, and their application are discussed, outlining their function and potential adverse impacts as well as the benefits that they can provide. Module two discusses beach and dune restoration and nourishment as an important component of proper coastal system management. Construction and maintenance of the components that make up the coastal system, such as dune restoration (including dune vegetation and sand fencing) and beach nourishment, are discussed in detail, including construction techniques and costs. The variety of techniques and equipment used to construct projects is discussed at length, including locating and analyzing compatible sediment material, which includes grain size, composition, and color, both from offshore and upland areas. Finding and transporting the best sediment material for the appropriate beach and dune system is a major focal point.

The Important Role of Vegetation in Stormwater Management

Vegetation is Nature’s best management practice (BMP) for controlling erosion, yet when we discuss BMPs, we are often focused on structural practices that reduce erosion and/or remove sediment. This webinar will focus on the important role that vegetation plays in stormwater management during and after construction and will present new guidance developed in Colorado that covers many fundamentals of successful revegetation and could be adapted to other regions. Dr. Earles will discuss the different hydrologic, physical and biological processes that make vegetation an effective BMP. Students will leave the webinar with a renewed appreciation for vegetation and the key role it plays in effective stormwater management.

Underground Storage: More than Hiding Stormwater - Sponsored

This presentation will provide attendees with an increased knowledge of underground stormwater systems, benefits, and best practices. By beginning with a review of stormwater design and evolution over time, attendees will acquire a strong foundational understanding of overall stormwater management. The presentation will explore methods ranging from stone beds to proprietary products like arches and module boxes, while also providing attendees with information about unique applications and innovative ways to incorporate different underground systems into a design.

Using TRM’s for High Performance Applications and Protection

Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs) have been used to protect the earth from erosion for many years. As technology advances we are able to replace many hard armor systems with soft armored systems that perform better and are much more environmentally friendly. High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats (HPTRM) are now being used in areas that experience extreme flow conditions and The Army Corps of Engineers is now using HPTRMs to protect their levee systems.

What’s a Contractor to do When the Sediment Pond Does Not Work?

A good design, proper construction and frequent maintenance still offers no guarantee that a sediment pond will discharge turbidity-free discharge. So what can a contractor do to improve the effectiveness of sediment ponds, after it has been constructed according to design standards; but still will not accomplish its objective? Briefly I will discuss the complexity of runoff generated by Mother Nature. Then I will examine the benefits of five initiatives: upstream treatment, inflow diversion, pond slope stability, filtering berms and discharge techniques. While any one of these components will result in some improvement of discharge quality, the incorporation of all five components will significantly increase sediment trapping. Examples of each component will be illustrated. Coupling these components will be the key to success!
