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.

The REVISED UNIVERSAL SOIL LOSS EQUATION (RUSLE) Version 2 - Part One

This is the first of a three part series on RUSLE Version 2. In this first module, we’ll be taking a look at the Essentials of Soil Loss Prediction. At the end of the module you’ll be able to define soil erosion and the types of soil erosion, as well as have a good understanding of the erosion process and why soilerosion is a concern. This understanding will be supported by a brief history of the prediction model and use of the erosion predictive tool. To access RUSLE2 please visit the NRCS RUSLE2 website(http://fargo.nserl.purdue.edu/RUSLE2_ftp/RUSLE2_Program_File/ ) since it also has the climate and soils data for the entire US and territories in other folders on this site. The installer file to download is: “Rusle2InstallerNRCS(2.5.2.11)b2014” This version is subject to updating from time to time, but this version is fairly current from August of 2014. The RUSLE2 installer comes with the base database for agriculture, but does have one user screen template for construction sites. Of course, you don’t get all the custom database or screen and printing enhancements for construction sites. If you are interested in full RUSLE2 training sessions please contact IECA Education at education@ieca.org or 303-640-7554. Thank You!

The REVISED UNIVERSAL SOIL LOSS EQUATION (RUSLE) Version 2 - Part One, Two & Three

In the first of a three part series on RUSLE Version 2. In this first module, we’ll be taking a look at the Essentials of Soil Loss Prediction. At the end of the module you’ll be able to define soil erosion and the types of soil erosion, as well as have a good understanding of the erosion process and why soilerosion is a concern. This understanding will be supported by a brief history of the prediction model and use of the erosion predictive tool. In the second of a three part series of the RUSLE Version 2. In this second module, we will look at the background for developing the RUSLE 2 model and how to apply it for plant development and land use. Also addressed are each factor within the equation and how to use RUSLE 2 as a planning tool. In the third of a three part series of the RUSLE Version 2. In this third and final module we explore the databases behind the model and show how RUSLE 2 software produces soil erosion estimates. Also covered in this module is everything from how the databases are organized to demonstrating the software with examples from real field data. To access RUSLE2 please visit the NRCS RUSLE2 website(http://fargo.nserl.purdue.edu/RUSLE2_ftp/RUSLE2_Program_File/ ) since it also has the climate and soils data for the entire US and territories in other folders on this site.

Tillage as a Stormwater Practice

Soils are often a neglected part of stormwater planning, although they can be a big asset. Post-construction soils are commonly in poor physical condition with little fertility to grow grass or other plants. In this webinar, we will discuss ways to assess soil condition and methods to create the environment for reduced runoff and enhanced plant growth.

The SWPPP, the NPDES Permit and the EPA or State regulations are not construction specifications. This course includes seven modules, which range from general specifications theory and practice to E&SC specifics with example specifications included.

Turbidity Control by Chemical Flocculation: Basic Concepts

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 first part, McLaughlin will discuss ways to make typical practices work much better and then explore the turbidity problem and how chemical treatment can solve it.

Turbidity Reduction Techniques for Pumping Operations on Construction Sites

Have you ever sampled and measured turbidity numeric levels for pumping or dewatering operations on your construction site? How turbid is your discharge from your work zone while working on a borrow site or pipe culvert near a stream? Will your discharge meet effluent limits prior to entering jurisdictional waters? This webinar will cover a number of techniques to reduce turbidity levels from pumped effluent. Learn about new technologies, design strategies, and case studies to maintain water quality near your construction operation.

Vegetation Basics

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.
