Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Control: Best Practices and Low Impact Solutions

Often construction-phase and post-construction stormwater management are separate worlds (different permits, different plans, different practices, etc.); however, in terms of hydrology, water quality and the ultimate success or failure of post-construction practices, they are closely related. This webinar will briefly review stormwater regulations for construction and post-construction and will explain how hydrology is a unifying theme. The webinar will include state-of-the-practice details for common LID and GI practices and will focus on details that are important to pay attention to during construction for successful stormwater quality management for the long term.

Controlling Turbidity: Getting Flocculation to Work on Your Site

While the US EPA has withdrawn its proposed turbidity limit on construction site runoff, there are still many states have or are proposing their own enforcement levels. Construction site owners and managers are also looking for ways to avoid public outcry and potential lawsuits over muddy water leaving their site. In most cases, typical and even more advanced erosion and sediment control practices will not prevent discharges that look like chocolate milk. This two-part seminar will explore the principles behind chemical treatments to rapidly settle suspended solids and reduce turbidity in runoff from construction sites. In the second part, he will then go over a variety of methods to apply those principles to greatly reduce turbidity. After conducting research on this subject for over 10 years in both laboratory and active construction site setting, McLaughlin has a lot of data to back up his recommendations! He will wrap up with a discussion of suggested chain of command options to avoid failures.

Ecological Monitoring for Construction

While monitoring and management of protected adjacent wetland features is a common condition of most anthropogenic activity approvals, no standard method for such work currently exists in Canada on a national (or provincial) level. Ecological monitoring methods open vary between sites depending on the preferred methods of the body conducting the work, and/or associated regulatory agencies. Consequently, the absence of standardization for ecological monitoring results in wide-ranging interpretation, development, implementation and quality of monitoring plans which in turn creates a “grey area” when it comes to consistency, compliance and accountability. What can you do to make sure you are working in compliance when there is no standard?

EPA's Final 2017 Construction General Permit

In February 2017, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Construction General Permit (CGP) will become effective. This session will provide background on construction stormwater regulations, discuss changes in the 2017 CGP, and review the process for obtaining coverage under the new permit.

Evaluation of Inlet Protection Practices using Large-Scale Testing Techniques

This technical presentation will showcase current ongoing research and large-scale testing efforts focused on improving existing storm drain inlet protection practices. The study, being conducted at the Auburn University Erosion and Sediment Control Testing Facility (AU-ESCTF), includes the investigation of typical roadway median inlet protection practices (i.e., aggregate barriers, sand bag barriers, silt fence barriers, wattle barriers, and manufactured practices) for protecting drop inlets during construction activities. Effective inlet protection practice needs, developed testing procedures, data collection practices, performance characteristics, and results will be discussed.

From Trash To Treasure

https://www.ieca.org/images/surfacewater.gif
Description: White Island, an 80-acre former municipal landfill located in Brooklyn, New York, is one of the first grassland mitigation projects required by New York State. The former landfill was constructed on historic marsh land and exhibited severe shoreline erosion due to wave action and tidal flux. Additionally, over 80 percent of the island was dominated by invasive species. The project involved bioengineered shoreline stabilization, invasive species control, and grassland habitat creation. The project served as mitigation for the loss of 56 acres of maritime grassland habitat due to construction of a nearby Housing Development and Retail Center. The NYSDEC determined the loss of grassland habitat was a significant adverse impact on several bird species and the creation of new maritime grassland habitat on White Island was required as compensatory mitigation.
