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.

Gully Analysis and Control

Erosion and sediment control professionals are expected to recognize and understand various types of erosion, and the processes involved to effectively analyze and consider treatment options. The presentation will summarize the processes of gully formation, enlargement and effects and offer some examples of control methods applied on the Sumter National Forest in the piedmont of SC, USA. Treatments concentrated primarily on hillslope gullies which were often associated with ephemeral and intermittent streams. Gully control treatment began after the area was acquired as national forest in the 1930s, celebrated success as well as endured and learned from failure with most of the examples provided from the last 35 years.

How to Write and Design Revegetation and Erosion Control Specifications

Specifications (Special Provisions) for revegetation and erosion control projects are often confusing, poorly written and organized, and an afterthought to large engineering projects. Costs associated with the work are often lump-summed under the bid schedule or if identified in line items are inconsistent with the specifications. This class will show how clear, well-written specifications benefit a project and how they are assembled. Elements of design will also be briefly addressed.

Hydraulics for Those Who Skipped it in College - Part One

This two part webinar is on the basics of hydraulics and its use in streambank stabilization and stream restoration. The participants will then understand the physics of water flow and how the hydraulic engineers used this information for river designs.

Hydromodification - Causes, Effects, and Mitigation

As professionals in erosion and sediment control we are often focused on on-site erosion and sediment controls. When considering changes in runoff rates and volumes, however, it is essential to look downstream of the site to understand how changes in hydrology may adversely affect downstream receiving waters from the standpoints of degradation, aggradation, and aquatic habitat. This presentation will focus on the causes and effects of hydromodification, the roles of peak flow rates and runoff/streamflow volume, and the fundamentals of mitigating these effects. The presentation will provide examples of strategies to mitigate impacts of hydromodofication including the importance of stormwater volume reduction, control of frequently occurring events that form channels, and bed and bank stabilization.

Ibero-American Congress on Erosion and Sediment Control

http://www.ieca.org/images/Chapter/Iberoameric/IECA_Iberoamerican%20logo%20black.png
Description: The Ibero-American Chapter of the International Erosion Control Association (IECA) has been executing traditionally every two years, an international congress in countries of the region, called "Ibero-American Congress on Erosion and Sediment Control" (CICES). The objective of this joint conference is to promote a preventive attitude and generate knowledge to remediate the problems of erosion and sediment, where for the first time the research and ecology component is strongly included. In this way, the vision will be multidisciplinary, allowing a more accurate approach to the problems, solutions, and commitment to the environment and its protection.

Introduction to Erosion and Sediment Control

This course has been developed to introduce participants to the concepts of Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC). It is intended for contractors, developers, consultants, municipal staff, landowners or anyone looking to gain a general knowledge of erosion and sediment control concepts and best management practices. The course is comprised of eight modules and discusses the potential impacts of construction activities, ESC fundamentals, erosion control practices, sediment control practices, in-water and near water works, pollution prevention, winter preparedness and legislation.
