Design of Infiltration Practices: Low Impact Development Tec

This course has been developed to provide participants with the technical training required to design Low Impact Development (LID) infiltration practices and guides them through the steps of the design process. The course is intended for developers, consultants, municipalities, landowners or anyone with a general understanding of LID, looking to enhance their knowledge and learn how to design LID infiltration based practices and the process required. This course is comprised of five modules that discuss the science of infiltration, infiltration best practices, conducting a site evaluation and field reconnaissance, creating a detailed design, and the operation and maintenance of LID infiltration practices.

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.

Introduction to Erosion and Sediment Control

This course has been developed to introduce participants to the concepts of Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC). It is intended for contractors, developers, consultants, municipal staff, landowners or anyone looking to gain a general knowledge of erosion and sediment control concepts and best management practices. The course is comprised of eight modules and discusses the potential impacts of construction activities, ESC fundamentals, erosion control practices, sediment control practices, in-water and near water works, pollution prevention, winter preparedness and legislation.

Introduction to Low Impact Development

This course has been developed to introduce participants to the concept of Low Impact Development (LID). It is intended for developers, consultants, municipal staff, landowners or anyone looking to gain a general knowledge of sustainable stormwater planning and practices. The course is comprised of four modules, the first discusses the evolution of stormwater management and the progression to LID. The next module introduces the principles of LID and non-structural site design strategies. Eleven LID practices are examined, providing general descriptions, special considerations and an overview of typical stormwater performance expectations in the third module. The final module explores the financial benefits of LID and introduces useful guides and tools that can be used to determine the costs of an LID project.

Large-Scale Performance Enhancement Study of Sediment Basins

This technical presentation will discuss research results of large-scale testing efforts focused on developing technologies to provide improved performance of sediment basins. The study, conducted at the Auburn University - Erosion and Sediment Control Testing Facility (AU-ESCTF), includes the investigation of traditional and advanced passive treatment using a lamella-based high-rate settling plate system. Testing procedures, data collection, performance characteristics, and results of the study will be discussed.

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.

Maintenance of Permanent Best Management Practices (BMPs)

As more permanent stormwater best management practices (BMPs) are being installed across the nation, performing ongoing maintenance has been a challenge. Permanent stormwater BMPs are now required in most urban developments across the country and it is crucial that these BMPs be maintained correctly. All permanent stormwater BMPs require regular maintenance to remain operating as designed. Maintenance has been neglected in the past due to a failure to understand who is responsible for maintenance, failure to budget for maintenance, and from a lack of knowledge on appropriate maintenance practices. In this webinar, we teach participants to recognize permanent stormwater BMPs in the field, identify maintenance needs and activities, and to perform maintenance correctly. This webinar will provide attendees a broad introduction to the needs and application of permanent stormwater BMP maintenance.
