Erosion Control in Arid Climates

When constructing in arid environments erosion and sediment control is often overlooked. Emphasis is on dust control and wind borne erosion with erosion from water and runoff left as an after-thought all too often. In arid environments when a rain storm occurs contractors are left scrambling while being reactive and developers are left exposed to risk and unaccounted for costs. Learn how to successfully stabilize soils in areas with less than 10 inches of annual rainfall (on average), as well as how to establish vegetation in such extreme climatic conditions in a proactive manner.

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.

Gully Analysis and Control

Erosion and sediment control professionals are expected to recognize and understand various types of erosion, and the processes involved to effectively analyze and consider treatment options. The presentation will summarize the processes of gully formation, enlargement and effects and offer some examples of control methods applied on the Sumter National Forest in the piedmont of SC, USA. Treatments concentrated primarily on hillslope gullies which were often associated with ephemeral and intermittent streams. Gully control treatment began after the area was acquired as national forest in the 1930s, celebrated success as well as endured and learned from failure with most of the examples provided from the last 35 years.

Hydromodification - Causes, Effects, and Mitigation

As professionals in erosion and sediment control we are often focused on on-site erosion and sediment controls. When considering changes in runoff rates and volumes, however, it is essential to look downstream of the site to understand how changes in hydrology may adversely affect downstream receiving waters from the standpoints of degradation, aggradation, and aquatic habitat. This presentation will focus on the causes and effects of hydromodification, the roles of peak flow rates and runoff/streamflow volume, and the fundamentals of mitigating these effects. The presentation will provide examples of strategies to mitigate impacts of hydromodofication including the importance of stormwater volume reduction, control of frequently occurring events that form channels, and bed and bank stabilization.

Ibero-American Congress on Erosion and Sediment Control

http://www.ieca.org/images/Chapter/Iberoameric/IECA_Iberoamerican%20logo%20black.png
Description: The Ibero-American Chapter of the International Erosion Control Association (IECA) has been executing traditionally every two years, an international congress in countries of the region, called "Ibero-American Congress on Erosion and Sediment Control" (CICES). The objective of this joint conference is to promote a preventive attitude and generate knowledge to remediate the problems of erosion and sediment, where for the first time the research and ecology component is strongly included. In this way, the vision will be multidisciplinary, allowing a more accurate approach to the problems, solutions, and commitment to the environment and its protection.

Implementing a SWPPP - Easy, right?

The design is complete, the permits have been obtained, and contracts are in place for contractors. It's time to get construction started! What could possibly go wrong? A SWPPP, stormwater pollution prevention plan, is a best guess about how the construction site will begin, progress and finish based upon the information that the design has before construction. However, it is rare that construction progresses as the designer envisioned. When implementing a SWPPP, expect to encounter the following: - The contractor will have a different - and possibly better - way of grading the site, along with a different construction sequence. - The unforeseen will be uncovered and it will impact the construction schedule. - Not all parties on the construction site will agree on E&SC or stormwater management for the site. When implementing the SWPPP, the inspector/site manager must adapt to these issues while still meeting the intent of all permits. SWPPP modifications. There is no perfect SWPPP. All SWPPPs will need revision and modification during construction. Some states do not require that plans be resubmitted when modifications are required. Other states do require plan submittal and approval. Know your state's requirements - and any professional requirements. In most states, professional engineers are the only people licensed to design pipes and embankments (think sediment basins and culverts). The SWPPP must reflect what's on the ground and vice versa. For example, when silt fence or check dams are removed when they are no longer needed, the SWPPP should be modified to show that these measures have been removed. Inspection documentation should also indicate that the measures have been removed and why they were removed. Together, the modified SWPPP and inspection documentation should clearly tell the story of the site conditions at the time of the inspections. Take photos of the site as well to confirm site conditions. Documentation. As the SWPPP is revised or modified, document the changes on the SWPPP sheets, in inspection reports and with photos. Documentation is critical to show compliance. The construction general permit allows time for a contractor/developer to respond to problems found on a construction site, and if the problems are resolved within that timeframe, the site is in compliance. Note that some states have additional regulations governing construction sites and off-site sedimentation can be considered a violation of the regulation, regardless of storm size. Besides SWPPP modification and inspection reports, a site manager/inspector must also keep good documentation of rain events. The Construction General Permit requires that measures be designed for the 2yr, 24hr rain event. To determine the return interval for each storm, document the time a storm started and ended and the depth of rain. That information can be compared to rainfall information provided on NOAA's Atlas 14 Point Precipitation Frequency Estimates website (https://hdsc.nws.noaa.gov/hdsc/pfds/pfds_map_cont.html) to determine the storm's return interval. Site managers/inspectors should use the rainfall data to make decisions about the failed measures. If measures failed in a storm that exceeded the 2 year storm equivalent intensity, the measures were adequate and should be reinstalled. If measures failed in a storm that was less than or equal to the 2 year storm event, the measures should be upgraded. can be compared to the rain fall information on NOAA's Atlas 13 site to determine the equivalent intensity storm. As a final good practice on a construction site, provide feedback to the designer about the site: what worked well, what didn't work well. If that information is not conveyed to the designer, the same issues may occur on other construction sites.
