Lessons in LID Construction

Low Impact Development (LID), an innovative stormwater management approach that treats, infiltrates, filters, and retains runoff at the source, is quickly becoming the new norm in Ontario. Construction of LID practices involves techniques and specifications that differ from traditional stormwater management construction practices. Failing to follow proper LID construction methods can result in barren bioretention landscapes, clogged infiltration practices, uneven permeable pavements, and ultimately costly post-construction repairs.

Lessons Learned from 46,000 ESC Inspections

Every day, 1,000's of construction site erosion and sediment control inspections are recorded by public and private inspectors across the country. Wouldn't it be helpful to compile and analyze the results of those inspections? This discussion summarizes analysis of inspection data recorded in over 46,000 construction site erosion and sediment control inspections on residential, commercial, municipal and large grading projects over a period of more than eight years.

Low Volume Roads

This webinar is designed to give an overview of the key design, construction and maintenance issues involved in low-volume roads, with an emphasis on important aspects of road drainage. Best Practices are presented, along with many design and mitigation practices used to help a road achieve its design life, be cost-effective, and minimize adverse environmental impacts. Drainage is emphasized since an old saying goes, “The three of the most important aspects of road design are Drainage, Drainage, and Drainage!” These include surface drainage and the use of culverts, low-water crossings, and bridges. Low-volume roads make up 60 to 70 percent of all roads worldwide. In the United States there are over 2.5 million miles of low-volume roads. On those roads major investments are made in the materials used for surfacing, in drainage crossing structures, and in the maintenance of the roads. Thus understanding the many aspects of roadway design and drainage are important to achieve good designs, to protect our investment in the roads, to minimize damage from storms, to minimize maintenance costs, and to protect water quality near the road and at crossings. This Webinar will briefly address the importance of slope stability issues, use of roadway materials, proper erosion control, and the many aspects road surface drainage used to keep water off the road surface and to avoid concentration of water. These include maintaining a good crown on the road, or an in-sloped or out-sloped profile, frequent culvert cross drains, rolling dips, lead-off ditches, drop inlets, and other measures that prevent water accumulation. Also major investments are made in drainage crossing structures. Proper culvert sizing is critical, along with good installation, alignment, bedding and compaction, use of headwalls and end sections, protection against plugging and overtopping, etc. Properly designed low-water crossings can offer a cost-effective alternative to culverts in some circumstances, especially on low-volume roads. Finally, bridges are a huge investment and they need adequate hydraulic capacity, protection against a variety of scour problems, bank stabilization, and maintenance.

Natural Gas Pipelines

Linear projects, especially natural gas pipelines, present many unique construction and restoration challenges. Additional constraints such as environmental conditions, cultural resources, threatened and endangered species, property owner agreements, right of way access, waterbodies, road crossings and Town/County/State Boundaries further compound the project design, pipeline location and existing resources effected. This workshop presents several examples of linear construction and common problems associated with pipeline construction and restoration. These examples will be followed by creative solutions and out of the box thinking that have yielded successful restoration and compliant results for multiple projects.

Permeable Pavement Design and Construction

Stormwater drainage technology has evolved to the point where it is now possible to create permeable pavements that allow stormwater drainage to occur almost immediately. The benefits to permeable pavements include having rainwater drain directly into soil, decreasing urban heating, and reducing overall stormwater runoff. This concept is gaining acceptance through studies conducted in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. This webinar focuses on what constitutes permeable pavement, design tools and methodologies in designing permeable pavement, the structural and hydrological capacities, and design traffic characterization.

Polymers for Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Control

This course has been developed to familiarize participants with the concepts of polymers and how they can be used for Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) on construction sites. The course is intended for developers, consultants, municipalities, landowners or anyone looking to learn about polymers and apply them for ESC. This course consists of six modules that discuss the basic concepts of polymers, soil stabilization with anionic polyacrylamide (PAM), PAM based stormwater clarification applications, additional PAM enhanced sediment controls, PAM assisted pond dredging, and anionic PAM application guidance for urban construction.

RAPPS (E&SC) for Oil and Gas Operations

This webinar will focus on reasonable and prudent practices for stabilization of construction activities associated with the oil and gas industry. RAPPS may not be a common acronym for erosion and sediment control practitioners outside of this energy sector’s operations but these “reasonable and prudent practices for stabilization” encompass the world of BMPs for this industry. Important operational, supplemental, and specialty RAPPs will be covered as well as introducing innovative RAPPs that can be used on your next project. RAPPS selection tools will be reviewed that assist the site supervisor in managing the site for protection of sensitive environmental resources and adjacent properties.
