2018 IECA State of the Industry

The 2018 IECA State of the Industry webinar will provide insight into the state of the International Erosion Control Association (IECA), a perspective on the industry shift to reducing environmental impact with biodegradable and reusable BMPs. This event will be moderated by Joanna Fetherolf, IECA’s Director of Education. With a membership of over 2,000 professionals, IECA is the foremost professional organization for the field of erosion and sediment control and stormwater management. IECA’s mission is to provide education, networking, and research for industry professionals. Samantha Roe, IOM, will provide an update from Thomas Schneider, CPESC, 2016 - 2019 IECA Board of Directors President, on the International Erosion Control Association’s key accomplishments and the direction IECA has been moving over the past few years. She will also provide an update from IECA Board of Directors President-Elect, Adam Dibble, CPESC-IT, CESSWI on key initiatives of the Board of Directors as we move into 2019. Roe will provide an update on areas of focus for the growth and support of membership and our industry. Dave Jenkins, Erosion Control/Stormwater Engineer, Port of Seattle. Dave will give a perspective on the environmental impact of your project. Silt fence fabric sent to the landfill; erosion products shipped thousands of miles to your project; products used once and thrown away. While trying to reduce the environmental impact of your project are you creating other, possibly greater impacts? The erosion control industry has evolved such that it’s possible to design and construct projects that utilize 100% biodegradable, recyclable, pre-cycled and reusable best management practices, reducing project impacts and increasing project sustainability. Greg Schaner, EPA, has worked as an attorney for EPA’s Office of Water since 2003. He has focused primarily on the NPDES stormwater program, including work on EPA’s CGP, MSGP, and the MS4 program. Prior to EPA, Greg worked for the State of Maryland, the National Association of Clean Water Agencies, and as an EPA contractor for SAIC. Greg received a BA from Colgate University, a graduate degree in environmental management from Duke University, and a JD at the Univ. of Maryland’s night law school. Greg has 3 children, ages 15, 9, and 3. Emily Halter, EPA, is an economist with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in the Office of Wastewater Management. Emily leads the construction and industrial stormwater programs at EPA Headquarters in Washington, DC. She holds an MA in environmental policy from the George Washington University and a BA in economics from Virginia Tech. The presentation will be followed by a question/answer session so you will have an opportunity to engage with the panel of experts to get your questions answered.

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.

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.
