Low Volume Roads

This webinar is designed to give an overview of the key design, construction and maintenance issues involved in low-volume roads, with an emphasis on important aspects of road drainage. Best Practices are presented, along with many design and mitigation practices used to help a road achieve its design life, be cost-effective, and minimize adverse environmental impacts. Drainage is emphasized since an old saying goes, “The three of the most important aspects of road design are Drainage, Drainage, and Drainage!” These include surface drainage and the use of culverts, low-water crossings, and bridges. Low-volume roads make up 60 to 70 percent of all roads worldwide. In the United States there are over 2.5 million miles of low-volume roads. On those roads major investments are made in the materials used for surfacing, in drainage crossing structures, and in the maintenance of the roads. Thus understanding the many aspects of roadway design and drainage are important to achieve good designs, to protect our investment in the roads, to minimize damage from storms, to minimize maintenance costs, and to protect water quality near the road and at crossings. This Webinar will briefly address the importance of slope stability issues, use of roadway materials, proper erosion control, and the many aspects road surface drainage used to keep water off the road surface and to avoid concentration of water. These include maintaining a good crown on the road, or an in-sloped or out-sloped profile, frequent culvert cross drains, rolling dips, lead-off ditches, drop inlets, and other measures that prevent water accumulation. Also major investments are made in drainage crossing structures. Proper culvert sizing is critical, along with good installation, alignment, bedding and compaction, use of headwalls and end sections, protection against plugging and overtopping, etc. Properly designed low-water crossings can offer a cost-effective alternative to culverts in some circumstances, especially on low-volume roads. Finally, bridges are a huge investment and they need adequate hydraulic capacity, protection against a variety of scour problems, bank stabilization, and maintenance.

Maximizing Project Success with Site Design Software - Spons

With the countless technological advances we have seen in the past decade, it only makes sense that our erosion control and revegetation efforts join the trend. By utilizing software to take an in-depth look at all aspects that can affect site closure, assist in developing and planning your erosion control and revegetation efforts all while having the ability to organize and store your project data. By utilizing these tools it is possible to create a plan that reduces risk and maximizes success.

Natural Gas Pipelines

Linear projects, especially natural gas pipelines, present many unique construction and restoration challenges. Additional constraints such as environmental conditions, cultural resources, threatened and endangered species, property owner agreements, right of way access, waterbodies, road crossings and Town/County/State Boundaries further compound the project design, pipeline location and existing resources effected. This workshop presents several examples of linear construction and common problems associated with pipeline construction and restoration. These examples will be followed by creative solutions and out of the box thinking that have yielded successful restoration and compliant results for multiple projects.

Plant Selection for Erosion and Sediment Control

Ever struggle with selecting plant materials specific to erosion and sediment control? What's best; seed or rooted stock, tap or fibrous roots, is more seed better? This course will review the different characteristics of plants and provide answers to these and more questions. It will provide guidance in selecting the best species and plant material types for a specific erosion control, sediment control, or wind stabilization application. Don't miss this discussion on a topic important to anyone who uses plants to stabilize disturbed soils.

Polymers for Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Control

This course has been developed to familiarize participants with the concepts of polymers and how they can be used for Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) on construction sites. The course is intended for developers, consultants, municipalities, landowners or anyone looking to learn about polymers and apply them for ESC. This course consists of six modules that discuss the basic concepts of polymers, soil stabilization with anionic polyacrylamide (PAM), PAM based stormwater clarification applications, additional PAM enhanced sediment controls, PAM assisted pond dredging, and anionic PAM application guidance for urban construction.

RAPPS (E&SC) for Oil and Gas Operations

This webinar will focus on reasonable and prudent practices for stabilization of construction activities associated with the oil and gas industry. RAPPS may not be a common acronym for erosion and sediment control practitioners outside of this energy sector’s operations but these “reasonable and prudent practices for stabilization” encompass the world of BMPs for this industry. Important operational, supplemental, and specialty RAPPs will be covered as well as introducing innovative RAPPs that can be used on your next project. RAPPS selection tools will be reviewed that assist the site supervisor in managing the site for protection of sensitive environmental resources and adjacent properties.

Soil Health and Erosion Control

https://www.ieca.org/images/ErosionandSedimentControl.gif
Description: This is a live webinar presented by Rhett Kerby, M.S. Today, more than ever, we understand the importance of soil health. Soil health is quickly becoming a topic of international concern. Internationally, lack of soil health negatively effects the quality of life in many countries due to reduced food production, decreased water quality, and increased soil erosion issues. The effects of poor soil health can be lessened or eliminated through education, awareness, and ultimately the adoption of Soil Health Best Management Practices (BMP). In this webinar, Rhett K. Kerby, M.S. will offer real world examples of soil health identifiers and discuss how Soil Health BMPs can be implemented to improve soil health and reduce erosion.

Specifying Erosion and Sediment Control Practices

This webinar is a combination of basic construction specifications training and information specific to E&SC. The SWPPP, the NPDES Permit and the EPA or State regulations are not construction specifications. This course includes three modules: The Specifications and the SWPPP; Making CSI Practices Work for Erosion and Sediment Control; Improved E&SC Work through Better E&SC Specifications.

Start Here: Primer on Erosion and Sediment Control

This introductory course is a must for those new to the erosion and sediment control field or those wishing to brush up on the fundamentals. The course will describe the basic categories and types of erosion, as well as their triggers on construction sites. A logical sequence of four lines of defense, including flow controls, erosion controls, sediment controls and good housekeeping will be outlined as well as an overview of BMPs and products available for each line of defense.
