RAPPS (E&SC) for Oil and Gas Operations

This webinar will focus on reasonable and prudent practices for stabilization of construction activities associated with the oil and gas industry. RAPPS may not be a common acronym for erosion and sediment control practitioners outside of this energy sector’s operations but these “reasonable and prudent practices for stabilization” encompass the world of BMPs for this industry. Important operational, supplemental, and specialty RAPPs will be covered as well as introducing innovative RAPPs that can be used on your next project. RAPPS selection tools will be reviewed that assist the site supervisor in managing the site for protection of sensitive environmental resources and adjacent properties.

Specifying Erosion and Sediment Control Practices

This webinar is a combination of basic construction specifications training and information specific to E&SC. The SWPPP, the NPDES Permit and the EPA or State regulations are not construction specifications. This course includes three modules: The Specifications and the SWPPP; Making CSI Practices Work for Erosion and Sediment Control; Improved E&SC Work through Better E&SC Specifications.

Start Here: Primer on Erosion and Sediment Control

This introductory course is a must for those new to the erosion and sediment control field or those wishing to brush up on the fundamentals. The course will describe the basic categories and types of erosion, as well as their triggers on construction sites. A logical sequence of four lines of defense, including flow controls, erosion controls, sediment controls and good housekeeping will be outlined as well as an overview of BMPs and products available for each line of defense.

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.

Sustainable Native Plant Establishment, Bioengineering & Successful Monitoring Methods - Part One

This course is Part One of a two module course about Native Plant Establishment and includes elements and methods for developing a well-thought-out native vegetation establishment program. In this first module, participants will learn why native plants are better than non-natives, what makes a good erosion control species, how to select plant species specific to their regions that can best control erosion and sediment transport, how to develop a suitable seed mixture of species, the pros and cons of different seeding techniques, and methods to ensure the success of your plan. The course is taught by an experienced restoration ecologist with over 35 years’ experience, and countless projects, some of them award winning, under his belt. The course is suitable for beginners to experts, and all will find something of value in the information provided.

The course is suitable for beginners to experts, and all will find something of value in the information provided. Part two of a two module course about Native Plant Establishment. In this second module the focus is on addressing the importance of seeding and planting methods, and soil amending, as well as post planting monitoring. This part of the course will help participants identify and understand how to address various problem soils that are commonly encountered. In addition, monitoring methods are discussed and participants will learn how to prepare a monitoring plan suitable for most jurisdictions. Part Two is taught by the same experienced restoration ecologist with over 35 years’ experience, and countless projects, some of them award winning, as Part One. The course is suitable for beginners to experts, and all will find something of value in the information provided.

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.
