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.

Post-Wildfire Remediation on Federal Lands

The wildfires of 2017 were monumental in their expanse, severity and cost to suppress- and the damage doesn't always end when the fire is put out. Loss of vegetation and fire-induced water repellent soils can trigger increased runoff which causes erosion, flooding or debris flows many miles downstream of the fire. This presentation will provide an overview of the effects of wildfires on natural resources and describe the post-fire emergency response (BAER) program implemented by the Forest Service and other federal land management agencies. Typical emergency response actions and treatment examples will be described along with examples of longer-term post fire remediation needs and costs.

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.

Soil Health for Construction - Sponsored By Profile Products

https://www.ieca.org/images/ErosionandSedimentControl.gif
Description: Healthy soil is a key component of long term erosion control and sustainable vegetation. One of the biggest ongoing challenges facing the erosion control and revegetation industries is the lack of healthy soil as a starting point on a project, as nearly all project sites are stripped down to nutritionally deficient subsoil layers incapable of supporting vegetation. This presentation will provide full details on what constitutes healthy soil in addition to providing comprehensive information about BST’s. Further and more importantly, this presentation will determine if BST are actually impacting soil health. In particular, multiple project sites that have been evaluated for various soil health parameters prior to and after BST application will be presented to determine soil health impacts.

Steep Slope Investigation and Remediation Techniques

https://www.ieca.org/images/ErosionandSedimentControl.gif
Description: This session will introduce a variety of slope failure types and provide instruction for the use of visual and investigative procedures for their identification. Upon learning the identification of the types of slope failure, and the source of the instability, remediation techniques will be introduced. Structural and Bio-Technical methods and procedures will be discussed as potential remediation procedures. Design and Installation of presented remediation techniques will be reviewed in a case study format, to demonstrate actual implementation of presented remediation techniques.

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.
