Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Control: Best Practices and Low Impact Solutions

Often construction-phase and post-construction stormwater management are separate worlds (different permits, different plans, different practices, etc.); however, in terms of hydrology, water quality and the ultimate success or failure of post-construction practices, they are closely related. This webinar will briefly review stormwater regulations for construction and post-construction and will explain how hydrology is a unifying theme. The webinar will include state-of-the-practice details for common LID and GI practices and will focus on details that are important to pay attention to during construction for successful stormwater quality management for the long term.

Controlling Turbidity: Getting Flocculation to Work on Your Site

While the US EPA has withdrawn its proposed turbidity limit on construction site runoff, there are still many states have or are proposing their own enforcement levels. Construction site owners and managers are also looking for ways to avoid public outcry and potential lawsuits over muddy water leaving their site. In most cases, typical and even more advanced erosion and sediment control practices will not prevent discharges that look like chocolate milk. This two-part seminar will explore the principles behind chemical treatments to rapidly settle suspended solids and reduce turbidity in runoff from construction sites. In the second part, he will then go over a variety of methods to apply those principles to greatly reduce turbidity. After conducting research on this subject for over 10 years in both laboratory and active construction site setting, McLaughlin has a lot of data to back up his recommendations! He will wrap up with a discussion of suggested chain of command options to avoid failures.

Erosion Control in Arid Climates

When constructing in arid environments erosion and sediment control is often overlooked. Emphasis is on dust control and wind borne erosion with erosion from water and runoff left as an after-thought all too often. In arid environments when a rain storm occurs contractors are left scrambling while being reactive and developers are left exposed to risk and unaccounted for costs. Learn how to successfully stabilize soils in areas with less than 10 inches of annual rainfall (on average), as well as how to establish vegetation in such extreme climatic conditions in a proactive manner.

Evaluation of Inlet Protection Practices using Large-Scale Testing Techniques

This technical presentation will showcase current ongoing research and large-scale testing efforts focused on improving existing storm drain inlet protection practices. The study, being conducted at the Auburn University Erosion and Sediment Control Testing Facility (AU-ESCTF), includes the investigation of typical roadway median inlet protection practices (i.e., aggregate barriers, sand bag barriers, silt fence barriers, wattle barriers, and manufactured practices) for protecting drop inlets during construction activities. Effective inlet protection practice needs, developed testing procedures, data collection practices, performance characteristics, and results will be discussed.

From Trash to Treasure

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. The main objectives of the restoration design were to: œ Improve shoreline stability; œ Control invasive species; œ Create habitat for rare or special-status species; and œ Increase biodiversity. While traditional armoring could have been used, vegetative bioengineering stabilization practices were selected to provide a connective vegetated zone along the shore for wildlife use. The vegetation also provided a long-term and low maintenance solution for the island site. A combination of a cellular confinement system and articulated concrete blocks were used to provide additional stability while the plants were establishing. The design incorporated several vegetative zones to provide suitable diverse habitat for ground nesting avian species, while supporting habitat for other wildlife. The vegetative zones were designed to provide contiguous acres of suitable grasslands habitat, maximize edge diversity, provide shelter and control erosion. Over 150,000 cubic yards of sand was installed across the island surface to create a planting substrate free of invasive species for the colonization by a variety warm-season grasses. Immediately following construction, the east coast was struck by Superstorm Sandy. The lessons learned from this extreme testing of vegetated shoreline stabilization techniques will be discussed.
