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.

MS4 Audit Preparation

Do you work for a regulated NPDES Phase I or Phase II MS4 entity? Are EPA and/or your state permitting authority gearing up to audit, evaluate, or re-evaluate local MS4 programs in your area? If so, this webinar will assist you with your audit preparations. Even if an audit is not looming in your immediate future, this webinar will provide helpful tips so that you’re always ready to do your best to demonstrate permit compliance. Examples of how MS4 communities have been audited and what tools they have used to successfully survive those audits will be presented. Audit preparations can also be used to help enhance other MS4 program areas so we will highlight those connections. Key elements of audit preparation include knowing what inspectors are looking for and how MS4 communities are being compared to each other. So take a tip from the Boy Scouts and “Be Prepared”!

Municipal Good Housekeeping Effectiveness Utilizing Facility

Meeting MS4 Program compliance requirements for Good housekeeping & Pollution Prevention can be difficult without a well-executed plan. Conducting Municipal Facility “Hot Spot” Assessments to properly identify facility exposure to pollutant runoff risk is an effective starting point for any regulated MS4. For facilities identified as “Hot Spots”, Facility Runoff Control Plans (FRCP) can one tool used by MS4s to comply with these requirements. J.B. Dixon and Allison Sambol of Felsburg, Holt & Ullevig will discuss the genesis of the FRCP approach, and how it has been successfully implemented in several Midwest large and small MS4s. Kent Holm, Environmental Coordinator with Douglas County, Nebraska, will share his MS4 program’s successful approach to municipal facility good housekeeping by implementing FRCPs in the most populated county in Nebraska.

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.
