Ecological Monitoring for Construction

While monitoring and management of protected adjacent wetland features is a common condition of most anthropogenic activity approvals, no standard method for such work currently exists in Canada on a national (or provincial) level. Ecological monitoring methods open vary between sites depending on the preferred methods of the body conducting the work, and/or associated regulatory agencies. Consequently, the absence of standardization for ecological monitoring results in wide-ranging interpretation, development, implementation and quality of monitoring plans which in turn creates a “grey area” when it comes to consistency, compliance and accountability. What can you do to make sure you are working in compliance when there is no standard?

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.

Improvements in Silt Fence Installations Determined Through

Silt fence performance, when used as a perimeter control, can be affected by a wide variety of factors (i.e., material properties, installation techniques, and site characteristics). The ability to evaluate differences in such factors provides a corridor for improvement that would likely go unnoticed in uncontrolled field conditions. The sediment barrier testing apparatus at the Auburn University Erosion and Sediment Control Test Facility (AU-ESCTF) has shown that by consistently replicating factors such as: topography, flow rate, and sediment loading; performance evaluations can be conducted on various types of sediment barriers and installation methods. This presentation will discuss eight different installation configurations tested on a non-woven, wire backed reinforced silt fence to determine performance as it relates to structural integrity, sediment retention, and water quality.

Improving Infiltration & Vegetation in Post-Cons

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.

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.

Lessons in LID Construction

Low Impact Development (LID), an innovative stormwater management approach that treats, infiltrates, filters, and retains runoff at the source, is quickly becoming the new norm in Ontario. Construction of LID practices involves techniques and specifications that differ from traditional stormwater management construction practices. Failing to follow proper LID construction methods can result in barren bioretention landscapes, clogged infiltration practices, uneven permeable pavements, and ultimately costly post-construction repairs.

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.
