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.

Identifying Waters of the United States

https://www.ieca.org/images/surfacewater.gif
Description: This is a live webinar presented by Aaron Brewer. Your ability to identify whether a water body as a “water of the U.S.” has the potential to cost or save a project two of our favorite things; time and money. For example, if a project requires excavation of sediment from a pond and the pond is not a water of the U.S., then the project does not need a Section 404 permit. If a site is discharging fill to a ditch and that ditch also happens to be a water of the U.S. then you may be risking a cease and desist letter from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The process to identify a water of the U.S. is complicated and can’t always be resolved without direct input from the Corps of Engineers. But there are seven simple concepts that will help you reach a conclusion for every water body you encounter. This webinar presents the fundamental tests for identifying waters of the U.S. and uses real world examples to demonstrate how to make that determination.

Improving Infiltration & Vegetation in Post-Cons

This webinar will highlight treatment technologies that can be implemented in the construction industry to manage turbidity from dewatering operations. Dewatering methods are briefly introduced; however, the course focuses on best available technologies to treat and polish pumped effluent. Participants will be exposed to a decision matrix that assists in identifying the appropriate treatment for a site specific operation. Upon selection of the treatment, basic design elements are presented for consideration. The webinar targets a broad based audience who can use the information provided as a foundation to then independently research a specific treatment technology in more detail.

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.

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 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.
