TMDL Compliance Planning

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 seven modules, which range from general specifications theory and practice to E&SC specifics with example specifications included.

Turbidity Control by Chemical Flocculation: Basic Concepts

While the US EPA has withdrawn its proposed turbidity limit on construction site runoff, there are still many states have or are proposing their own enforcement levels. Construction site owners and managers are also looking for ways to avoid public outcry and potential lawsuits over muddy water leaving their site. In most cases, typical and even more advanced erosion and sediment control practices will not prevent discharges that look like chocolate milk. This two-part seminar will explore the principles behind chemical treatments to rapidly settle suspended solids and reduce turbidity in runoff from construction sites. In the first part, McLaughlin will discuss ways to make typical practices work much better and then explore the turbidity problem and how chemical treatment can solve it.

Using TRM’s for High Performance Applications and Protection

Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs) have been used to protect the earth from erosion for many years. As technology advances we are able to replace many hard armor systems with soft armored systems that perform better and are much more environmentally friendly. High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats (HPTRM) are now being used in areas that experience extreme flow conditions and The Army Corps of Engineers is now using HPTRMs to protect their levee systems.

Vegetation Basics

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.
