Fluvial Geomorphology

In this two part webinar, fluvial geomorphology's theories and principals are presented. This will include theoretical and applied approaches related to river forms (and how they got that way!) that would be helpful to all people working with river systems. We will also look at how fluvial geomorphology intersects with other disciplines (e.g., hydrology, geology, ecology, engineering, etc.) that are part of a river project. This will especially be beneficial to those involved in stream restoration. This event is worth 3 Professional Development Hours.

From Trash To Treasure

Description: White Island, an 80-acre former municipal landfill located in Brooklyn, New York, is one of the first grassland mitigation projects required by New York State. The former landfill was constructed on historic marsh land and exhibited severe shoreline erosion due to wave action and tidal flux. Additionally, over 80 percent of the island was dominated by invasive species. The project involved bioengineered shoreline stabilization, invasive species control, and grassland habitat creation. The project served as mitigation for the loss of 56 acres of maritime grassland habitat due to construction of a nearby Housing Development and Retail Center. The NYSDEC determined the loss of grassland habitat was a significant adverse impact on several bird species and the creation of new maritime grassland habitat on White Island was required as compensatory mitigation.

Introduction to Low Impact Development

This course has been developed to introduce participants to the concept of Low Impact Development (LID). It is intended for developers, consultants, municipal staff, landowners or anyone looking to gain a general knowledge of sustainable stormwater planning and practices. The course is comprised of four modules, the first discusses the evolution of stormwater management and the progression to LID. The next module introduces the principles of LID and non-structural site design strategies. Eleven LID practices are examined, providing general descriptions, special considerations and an overview of typical stormwater performance expectations in the third module. The final module explores the financial benefits of LID and introduces useful guides and tools that can be used to determine the costs of an LID project.

Lessons in LID Construction

Low Impact Development (LID), an innovative stormwater management approach that treats, infiltrates, filters, and retains runoff at the source, is quickly becoming the new norm in Ontario. Construction of LID practices involves techniques and specifications that differ from traditional stormwater management construction practices. Failing to follow proper LID construction methods can result in barren bioretention landscapes, clogged infiltration practices, uneven permeable pavements, and ultimately costly post-construction repairs.

Maintenance of Permanent Best Management Practices (BMPs)

As more permanent stormwater best management practices (BMPs) are being installed across the nation, performing ongoing maintenance has been a challenge. Permanent stormwater BMPs are now required in most urban developments across the country and it is crucial that these BMPs be maintained correctly. All permanent stormwater BMPs require regular maintenance to remain operating as designed. Maintenance has been neglected in the past due to a failure to understand who is responsible for maintenance, failure to budget for maintenance, and from a lack of knowledge on appropriate maintenance practices. In this webinar, we teach participants to recognize permanent stormwater BMPs in the field, identify maintenance needs and activities, and to perform maintenance correctly. This webinar will provide attendees a broad introduction to the needs and application of permanent stormwater BMP maintenance.

Stormwater Low Impact Development Practices • Part 1

This is part 1 of the Stormwater LIDs 2-hour course. Low Impact Development (LID) practices are Best Management Practices (BMPs) developed for managing stormwater runoff from land development sites. LIDs are used (1) to facilitate infiltration of site runoff and (2) to provide treatment of the runoff, thus improving the quality of the runoff entering the local streams and the groundwater. Many LIDs have been developed and are being prescribed by designers and installed by contractors on land development sites. Each has advantages and disadvantages that must be considered if the LID is expected to perform properly. This series will focus on the design and expected function of Bioretention Cells (Rain Gardens) and Green Roofs.
