Changing the Development Paradigm to Embrace LID - Part One

The Problem with Conventional Development & Stormwater Management: This webinar will investigate and demonstrate the many impacts, associated with our current approach of prescriptive land use policies and stormwater management that have led to adverse impacts to our natural environment, particularly aquatic systems due to “the law of unintended consequences” of these policies. The webinar will also introduce attendees to the concept of Low Impact Development (LID) which is a paradigm shift in how development and stormwater is done to minimize the impacts of development on the natural environment. A history of LID will be provided as well as a discussion of how LID works and why it is a much better approach for land development projects. The Basis of Low Impact Development: In this webinar attendees will learn about the most important aspect of Low Impact Development (LID), Environmental Site Design (ESD). ESD is the cornerstone of the LID approach by evaluating the natural resources on the site and placing the development on the land which is most suitable for it. The natural environment provides many positive benefits especially related to the rainfall runoff relationship. These many benefits will be discussed and it will be demonstrated how the application of ESD for residential development can preserve many of these benefits, while at the same time mimic the natural hydrologic relationship for small, frequent rainfall events. The common hydrologic goals associated with LID will also be discussed and it will be shown how ESD can help a designer meet these goals. In addition to the hydrologic benefits of ESD, the preservation of woodlands and meadows also provide other environmental benefits such as the sequestering of carbon.

CISEC Module 1: EPA Rules and Regulations

The purpose of this module is to ensure inspectors understand EPA and the Clean Water Act (CWA) requirements and how they are applicable to inspections. Participants will evaluate EPA’s 2012 construction general permit as it applies to the duties of inspectors. Participants will also evaluate SWPPP details so that participants understand what they must do to meet federal compliance criteria.

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.

CISEC Module 4: Conducting Construction Site Inspections

This module covers the basic duties of an inspector by conducting a “virtual” tour of a construction site. Participants will reinforce their role and responsibilities as inspectors to meet EPA Phase I and Phase II requirements. The module will include “hands-on” exercises on documenting, communicating, reading SWPPPs and S&EC plans, writing reports,interacting with fellow participants, and assessing what to look for on a construction site.

Connecting with Stakeholders for Stormwater Success

Short and long-term successes of stormwater programs are built on planning, design, engineering and stakeholder support among other critical elements. Building a network of stormwater advocates is important for public acceptance and understanding of how stormwater impacts water resources. There are several levels of engagement and involvement that depend on stakeholder interest, understanding and time availability. Stakeholder motivations, learning styles, and program options are all part of the overall engagement process. This presentation will describe lessons learned working with community stakeholders to build awareness and involvement in stormwater management.

Construction Dewatering

This webinar will highlight treatment technologies that can be implemented in the construction industry to manage turbidity from dewatering operations. Dewatering methods are briefly introduced; however, the course focuses on best available technologies to treat and polish pumped effluent. Participants will be exposed to a decision matrix that assists in identifying the appropriate treatment for a site specific operation. Upon selection of the treatment, basic design elements are presented for consideration. The webinar targets a broad based audience who can use the information provided as a foundation to then independently research a specific treatment technology in more detail.

Construction Inspection Techniques that Really Work

This webinar is a welcome departure for traditional theory and speculation, it will consist of real world examples on how inspection techniques and programs can make a remarkable difference in construction site compliance. Participants in this course will be able to integrate several, concrete steps to change the condition of their existing projects to environmentally compliant, profitable projects. Take the time to refresh your set of skills on stormwater compliance, learn more profitable techniques, and experience lessons from project experience in several areas to bring back to your site. You will not be disappointed, this course is fast paced, filled with realistic tools, and designed with the end user benefits in mind.
