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While the US EPA has withdrawn its proposed turbidity limit on construction site runoff, there are still many states have or are proposing their own enforcement levels.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.

Turbidity Reduction Techniques for Pumping Operations on Construction Sites

Have you ever sampled and measured turbidity numeric levels for pumping or dewatering operations on your construction site? How turbid is your discharge from your work zone while working on a borrow site or pipe culvert near a stream? Will your discharge meet effluent limits prior to entering jurisdictional waters? This webinar will cover a number of techniques to reduce turbidity levels from pumped effluent. Learn about new technologies, design strategies, and case studies to maintain water quality near your construction operation.

Underground Storage: More than Hiding Stormwater - Sponsored

This presentation will provide attendees with an increased knowledge of underground stormwater systems, benefits, and best practices. By beginning with a review of stormwater design and evolution over time, attendees will acquire a strong foundational understanding of overall stormwater management. The presentation will explore methods ranging from stone beds to proprietary products like arches and module boxes, while also providing attendees with information about unique applications and innovative ways to incorporate different underground systems into a design.

Understanding Industrial Stormwater Program Development

This webinar will draw on some of the best practices in the industry on how to setup a robust program from a centralized records system to a dedicated stormwater team. We will cover how to run an annual stormwater training program for facility staff, including general awareness training and specific stormwater team training. In addition, we will cover the risks associated with non-compliance including examples of poorly setup programs and the financial ramifications of enforcement actions and lawsuits. To keep your program in compliance, we will focus on one of the key Best Management Practices (BMPs), good housekeeping, used to ensure compliance with industrial stormwater permits.

Update on How US EPA is Implmenting Regulatory Reform

This recorded webinar is presented by Leah Pilconis Environmental Law and Policy Advisor for the Associated General Contractors of America, will help you navigate President Trump’s Regulatory Reform Agenda. Pilconis will explore data from a new study that examines the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rules and regulations over the last decade (data indicates the U.S. EPA has issued the most and costliest rules during this time period). She will then take a deep dive into a series of Presidential Executive Orders that have come out in the last 75 days that are aimed at cutting back rules, streamlining regulatory reviews and permitting with a focus on the ones that have particular bearing on the U.S. EPA. You’ll also get an update on the establishment of a new Regulatory Reform Task Force at the U.S. EPA that is charged with recommending existing regulations that can be repealed, replaced or modified to make them less burdensome. The regulated community has an opportunity to weigh in with the Agency regarding the programs that should undergo review, but the timeline is short! The EPA program and regional offices have a deadline of May 15, 2017, to give the Task Force their recommendations. Finally, learn how President Trump’s Fiscal Year 2018 Budget is translating into U.S. EPA planning, as far as future staffing and program cuts.

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.

What’s a Contractor to do When the Sediment Pond Does Not Work?

A good design, proper construction and frequent maintenance still offers no guarantee that a sediment pond will discharge turbidity-free discharge. So what can a contractor do to improve the effectiveness of sediment ponds, after it has been constructed according to design standards; but still will not accomplish its objective? Briefly I will discuss the complexity of runoff generated by Mother Nature. Then I will examine the benefits of five initiatives: upstream treatment, inflow diversion, pond slope stability, filtering berms and discharge techniques. While any one of these components will result in some improvement of discharge quality, the incorporation of all five components will significantly increase sediment trapping. Examples of each component will be illustrated. Coupling these components will be the key to success!

Working in Waterways

Projects that involve construction activities in waterways are some of the most challenging ones that engineers and contractors face. These projects often involve obtaining permits from multiple agencies, engineering of temporary diversion measures, and development of strategies for stormwater control measures in what is often a space-constrained environment.
