A Different Way of Looking at Sediment Control on Constructi

Has your BMP failed and you don't know why? Do you feel like you are checking off the BMP box without a full grasp of the science behind the BMP placement? This course discusses the effects of stormwater runoff volume and rates on the performance of temporary sediment control BMPs on construction site. Many times, it is determined that the BMP was the cause of a failure. In reality, the BMP failure was caused by stormwater runoff in excess of the BMPs capacity, this failure could have been identified during the design process. This course will look at topography, soil type and geographic location and how you can use this information to predict the effectiveness of design for your construction site.

Advanced Turbidity Treatment Systems

Advanced Treatment Systems or ATS has proven effective for turbidity control for several years. While all agencies are not in universal agreement on the elements of ATS or the regulations for the use of ATS this webinar introduces the required elements for successful monitoring and treatment of construction site runoff for both turbidity and pH control. ATS can involve chemical flocculation, electrocoagulation, filtration and gravity settling. This seminar will follow and build upon the flocculation presentations of Dr. Richard McLaughlin Ph.D. to incorporate the use of automated systems designed to monitor and treat Stormwater using automated chemical dosing and filtration systems to consistently treat construction site discharges to acceptable levels.

American Society of Civil Engineers Guideline Update

https://www.ieca.org/images/ErosionandSedimentControl.gif
Description: This is a live webinar presentation. The American Society of Civil Engineers has recently published new guidelines in two areas. The first part of this webinar will address the new guidelines from ASCE regarding the Design, Construction and Maintenance of Permeable Pavement. The presenter, David Hein, has been extensively involved in the use of permeable pavement infrastructure and chairs the ASCE committee that developed this structural and hydrological design standard for permable pavement. The second part of this webinar will address the new standard from ASCE regarding Management Practices for Control of Erosion and Sediment from Construction Activities. The presenter, Dennis Richards, is an engineering consultant with a focus in hydraulic and sedimentation engineering. Dennis is the chair of ASCE's Management Practices for Control of Erosion and Sediment Standards Committee.

Basic Hydrology - Part 1

Knowledge of hydrology is essential for individuals interested in water quality and those involved with land use management activities including erosion and sediment control, designing and reviewing stormwater management plans, as well as local and state regulators and decision makers. This course will describe and discuss the factors that influence stormwater runoff and demonstrate the methodology and procedures to quantify runoff volumes. Precipitation, drainage areas, hydrologic soil groups, land use cover and hydrologic conditions will be explained, through a design example, to convert rainfall to runoff by using USDA-NRCS TR55 hydrologic analyses. Watershed runoff volumes will be calculated.

Basic Hydrology - Part 2

This course will take participants through the evaluation and determination of the parameters for the time of concentration for a watershed and its application in determining the peak rate of runoff for different storm frequencies in the watershed. The USDA-NRCS unit hydrograph use will be explained and its use to calculate the peak discharge will be demonstrated through a design example. Comparison of pre-developed and post-developed discharges will be made for estimating stormwater detention basin sizing.

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.

Changing the Development Paradigm to Embrace LID - Part One

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.
