Stormwater Low Impact Development Practices • Part 2

This is part 2 of the Stormwater LIDs 2-hour course. Low Impact Development (LID) practices are Best Management Practices (BMPs) developed for managing stormwater runoff from land development sites. LIDs are used (1) to facilitate infiltration of site runoff and (2) to provide treatment of the runoff, thus improving the quality of the runoff entering the local streams and the groundwater. Many LIDs have been developed and are being prescribed by designers and installed by contractors on land development sites. Each has advantages and disadvantages that must be considered if the LID is expected to perform properly. This series will focus on the design and expected function of Porous Pavement, Cisterns, Swales and Wetlands.

Stormwater Management Pond Muck

SWM ponds require routine sediment removal in order to maintain stormwater quality and quantity control. Sediments typically contain common urban contaminants (e.g. petroleum hydrocarbons (PHCs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), road salt, etc.) which trigger non-hazardous waste disposal requirements. Landfill tipping fees can amount to hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars per pond. This webinar presents two recent sediment beneficial use case studies. These studies demonstrate how ecotoxicity tests and risks assessments allowed the sediments to be used as topsoil amendments as cost effective and environmentally sustainable alternatives to landfill disposal. These studies set the precedent for future SWM pond sediment beneficial use projects as well.

Stormwater Monitoring: A Primer on Basic Data and Methods

When it rains, water tends to get dirty. Very dirty. This one-hour pre-recorded webinar is a primer on basic water quality monitoring skills, data and resources available to assist with stormwater management efforts. Reference materials are based on a volunteer water quality monitoring program in Iowa, and how its field parameters can be applied to erosion/sediment and stormwater management practices as a method of regular reporting, assessment and analysis of water quality improvement. The act of water quality monitoring and use of data can be applied to all six of the minimum control measures required by the NPDES program. Learn some of the basic steps for gathering data and how it can be applied to each.

Technical Design and Construction for Construction Field Personnel

This pre-recorded webinar is designed to give field construction personnel a basic understanding of the Best Management Practices that are commonly used to control and reduce erosion and sedimentation from storm water runoff on construction sites. The proper use and placement of BMPs, along with the critical details of construction will be presented. In addition, the webinar will address the administrative aspects of the NPDES (and state issued) permit process that must be performed in the field. These processes include proper inspection and record keeping, and maintenance and control of documents that are required to be kept on site. This webinar is targeted to all levels of field personnel expertise. Junior level field mangers will derive a basic knowledge of the NPDES requirements, while more experienced field managers will receive instruction that will allow them to better analyze the erosion and sedimentation control design for a project and make them a more effective “last check” on each project’s compliance with the DPDES, or state issued permit.

Techniques for Effective Beach & Shoreline Stabilization - Part Two

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.

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.

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.
