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.

Rain Water Harvesting: Applications and Maintenance

As pressure mounts on domestic water supplies and stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces becomes more of a problem, rain water harvesting can lessen pressure on water supplies and reduce stormwater runoff. Rain water harvesting has been used for centuries. In ancient Rome and Byzantium water was stored in huge underground cisterns to help walled citied withstand sieges. In climates with alternating wet and dry seasons water can be stored in cisterns to provide supply in the dry season. Rainwater harvesting can provide economical irrigation water as well as non-potable water for domestic toilet flushing, clothes washing, and car washing if plumbing codes allow.

Sampling and Analysis for Meeting Compliance Requirements

Stormwater discharge monitoring has changed over the years, and the visual chocolate vs. vanilla observations have been ramped up to collection and testing of the water to see if meets certain discharge criteria. Most of the sampling requirements stem around turbidity, but there are other constituents (potential pollutants) of concern that may come into play depending upon the construction activities at the time of a rain event. It is important to understand how to collect, handle, store, and test samples to ensure that the results from the testing are defendable. This course will provide information to help prepare the person collecting the samples how to prevent contamination of the samples, understand the equipment and procedures for field testing, and how to document and handle samples that will require lab testing.

Steep Slope Investigation and Remediation Techniques

The initial site investigation of a Steep Slope is critical in the selection of the most prudent remediation procedure. This course provides an overview of how to identify different types of slope activity, with on-site techniques and inspection procedures for determining the source of the instability. Following the identification of the slope and its source of instability a method of remediation must be developed. The course will provide a variety of remediation examples along with a review of their installation procedures to strengthen and or reinforce the individual participant’s knowledge and skill in the selection and installation of the appropriate remediation procedure. The focus of the course is to equip the contractor, site inspector or engineer with on-site inspection techniques for slope instability identification, and general knowledge of prudent remediation procedures and their implementation.

Steep Slope Stabilization Using Environmentally Sound Techni

This course will help you to more effectively evaluate slope failure areas and to conduct the necessary field investigations to support site design. Environmentally sound techniques are emphasized in order to provide a variety of project benefits including aesthetics, soil stability, improved water quality, reduced runoff, and increased species diversity. Case studies are reviewed and provide insight and practical applications of design strategies and methods. Steep slope stabilization successes and failures are included. Case studies with a range of field conditions and design solutions are emphasized.

Stormwater Low Impact Development Practices • Part 1

This is part 1 of the Stormwater LIDs 2-hour course. Low Impact Development (LID) practices are Best Management Practices (BMPs) developed for managing stormwater runoff from land development sites. LIDs are used (1) to facilitate infiltration of site runoff and (2) to provide treatment of the runoff, thus improving the quality of the runoff entering the local streams and the groundwater. Many LIDs have been developed and are being prescribed by designers and installed by contractors on land development sites. Each has advantages and disadvantages that must be considered if the LID is expected to perform properly. This series will focus on the design and expected function of Bioretention Cells (Rain Gardens) and Green Roofs.

Sustainable Native Plant Establishment, Bioengineering & Successful Monitoring Methods - Part One

This course is Part One of a two module course about Native Plant Establishment and includes elements and methods for developing a well-thought-out native vegetation establishment program. In this first module, participants will learn why native plants are better than non-natives, what makes a good erosion control species, how to select plant species specific to their regions that can best control erosion and sediment transport, how to develop a suitable seed mixture of species, the pros and cons of different seeding techniques, and methods to ensure the success of your plan. The course is taught by an experienced restoration ecologist with over 35 years’ experience, and countless projects, some of them award winning, under his belt. The course is suitable for beginners to experts, and all will find something of value in the information provided.
