Bioengineering and Biotechnical Soil Stabilization

This online course condenses nearly 20 years of authors’ experience into1 hour. The course includes fascinating facts about the history of bioengineering in the West. Where did the term “Straw Wattle” originate? Answers to the question about “design life” of biotechnical methods lie in understanding successional reclamation? Plus, this course will offer 4 of the most useful willow methods. For novices to experts, this course is a must for those interested in Bioengineering (AKA • Biotechnical Soil Stabilization). Understand the guiding principles behind the Biotechnical techniques, the geotechnical benefits, the history, and the many important details necessary for a successful project. Designers and implementers will improve your success. The techniques covered are applicable to both river and upland settings. Learn from past projects, proffered with the benefit of time and presented in straightforward manner.

Biotic Soil Amendments for Site Revegetation

Biotic Soil Amendments, BSA's, have become as cost effective way to successfully re-vegetate sites with poor soils. The erosion control is pretty good at preventing erosion when we do what we know we should, however we still fail all too often at the vegetation establishment goals. BSA's offer a cost effective way to jumpstart the soil building process at the time of seeding to ensure the site will be stable long term. This presentation explores the available BSA's and follows case studies of their effective use on challenging projects.

Biotic Soil Media - Engineering Soils for Sustainable Vegetation - Sponsored by Profile Products

On challenging and hard to access sites, engineered soils are proving to be a cost-effective topsoil alternative. By testing existing soil and selecting the right growing media, it is possible to increase the biological activity and add necessary organic materials for biotic components to thrive in. Creating and developing these micro ecosystems is now feasible where topsoil, compost and other sources of organic matter were formerly the standards.

Building Green: Atlanta's Green Infrastructure Approach

The City of Atlanta has embraced the use of green infrastructure as a means of combined sewer capacity relief, ecosystem restoration, economic stimulus, and water quality control. In February of 2013, Atlanta adopted one of the most far-reaching stormwater management ordinances in the country.Ê The ordinance helped lay the groundwork for a robust green infrastructure program, both for private development as well as capital improvement projects undertaken by the City.Ê To date, the City has permitted over 2,000 construction projects that utilize green infrastructure to reduce the volume of polluted runoff. ÊIn addition, the City is currently installing the largest permeable paver roadway project in North America - six miles - to help alleviate flooding in neighborhoods served by the City’s combined sewer infrastructure.

Changing the Development Paradigm to Embrace LID - Part 1

The Problem with Conventional Development & Stormwater Management: This webinar will investigate and demonstrate the many impacts, associated with our current approach of prescriptive land use policies and stormwater management that have led to adverse impacts to our natural environment, particularly aquatic systems due to “the law of unintended consequences” of these policies. The webinar will also introduce attendees to the concept of Low Impact Development (LID) which is a paradigm shift in how development and stormwater is done to minimize the impacts of development on the natural environment. A history of LID will be provided as well as a discussion of how LID works and why it is a much better approach for land development projects.

Changing the Development Paradigm to Embrace LID - Part 2

The Basis of Low Impact Development: In this webinar attendees will learn about the most important aspect of Low Impact Development (LID), Environmental Site Design (ESD). ESD is the cornerstone of the LID approach by evaluating the natural resources on the site and placing the development on the land which is most suitable for it. The natural environment provides many positive benefits especially related to the rainfall runoff relationship. These many benefits will be discussed and it will be demonstrated how the application of ESD for residential development can preserve many of these benefits, while at the same time mimic the natural hydrologic relationship for small, frequent rainfall events. The common hydrologic goals associated with LID will also be discussed and it will be shown how ESD can help a designer meet these goals. In addition to the hydrologic benefits of ESD, the preservation of woodlands and meadows also provide other environmental benefits such as the sequestering of carbon.
