An Introduction to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles as a Tool for Er

This webinar will showcase current ongoing research focused on using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for conducting site inspections applications. The study, being conducted by Auburn University researchers, focuses on erosion and sediment control applications in construction. Participants will be exposed to UAV technologies to develop: project progression documentation, photogrammetric site visualization, highly detailed digital elevation models, and assessment of vegetation and crop health. Developed inspection methods, case study site assessments, and preliminary research findings and results will be discussed. The webinar will cover topics geared towards conducting inspections for construction, infrastructure, environmental, and agricultural applications.

Applications of the High Definition Stream Survey

The High Definition Stream Survey (HDSS) approach was created to rapidly gather continuous geo-referenced data in a single pass for a broad range of stream and streambank conditions by integrating GPS, video, depth, water quality and other sensors. Results from HDSS data can be used to prioritize and locate areas of high erosion, determine the extent and distribution of instream habitat, locate areas that contribute to poor stream conditions, define the geomorphic condition for the stream, document restoration results and provide a powerful "virtual tour" experience. Trutta Environmental Solutions recently surveyed over 120 miles of the Duck River, TN in only eight days which also included over 100 cross sections to prove in depth bathymetric measurements for the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.

Arid and Semiarid Soils: Characteristics and Challenges

Revegetation, reclamation, and mitigation become increasingly difficult as water becomes the most limiting factor for plant growth. These problems often are compounded in semiarid and arid regions by salinity, which further restricts plant growth, and sodicity, which destroys soil structure. The inability to establish surface vegetative cover exacerbates problems with both wind and water erosion. This presentation will address which soil and climate properties to evaluate to predict the success of revegetation efforts, and identify methods to address the specific management challenges encountered in working with arid and semiarid region soils.

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.

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.

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.

Canada’s National Erosion and Sediment Control Inspection

This presentation will take an inside look at the 1st edition of CSA/W202, Erosion and Sediment Control Inspection and Monitoring, to showcase how best practices were harmonized to create a national set of minimum requirements. It will highlight the ability of the standard to streamline project administration and eliminate guess work, and how such requirements lend themselves well to incorporation in to contracts and permits. Finally, the presentation will touch on efforts to drive uptake, plans for future ESC standards, as well as the various aspects of CSA/W202 that might serve as a model for future standardization efforts in the U.S. and elsewhere.

CISEC Module 3: Inspecting BMPs

This module will provide the necessary tools for inspecting BMPs found on land development, vertical/big box construction, and linear projects. Participants will learn about inspecting installed sediment and erosion control measures, whether the BMPs are functioning in a correct manner, and assess BMP limitations. In addition, information will be provided on inspecting storage areas where potential pollution problems may occur and assessing whether new BMPs need to be added or whether existing structures can be removed.
