Techniques for Effective Beach & Shoreline Stabilization • Part One & Part Two

Module one discusses the components of the coastal system and explains longshore transport, tidal inlet processes, the causes of erosion and offers a variety of engineering solution to address these problems. Shoreline armoring methods (which can include a multitude of such engineering solutions as vertical sheet pile bulkheads or seawalls, revetments, geotextile structures, and other forms of armoring) are discussed, along with structural designs intended to protect the shoreline, such as groins and breakwaters. Examples of the variety of these types of structures, the materials that are used, and their application are discussed, outlining their function and potential adverse impacts as well as the benefits that they can provide. Module two discusses beach and dune restoration and nourishment as an important component of proper coastal system management. Construction and maintenance of the components that make up the coastal system, such as dune restoration (including dune vegetation and sand fencing) and beach nourishment, are discussed in detail, including construction techniques and costs. The variety of techniques and equipment used to construct projects is discussed at length, including locating and analyzing compatible sediment material, which includes grain size, composition, and color, both from offshore and upland areas. Finding and transporting the best sediment material for the appropriate beach and dune system is a major focal point.

The Evolution of Sediment Control Technology

This course will focus on the ever expanding set of tools now available to assist with sediment control on active job sites. While traditional approaches involved creative use of existing materials, newer solutions have been developed with specific problem solving as the focus. The goal of this session will be to provide immediately useful information to all who participate.

The Important Role of Vegetation in Stormwater Management

Vegetation is Nature’s best management practice (BMP) for controlling erosion, yet when we discuss BMPs, we are often focused on structural practices that reduce erosion and/or remove sediment. This webinar will focus on the important role that vegetation plays in stormwater management during and after construction and will present new guidance developed in Colorado that covers many fundamentals of successful revegetation and could be adapted to other regions. Dr. Earles will discuss the different hydrologic, physical and biological processes that make vegetation an effective BMP. Students will leave the webinar with a renewed appreciation for vegetation and the key role it plays in effective stormwater management.

The Iowa Watershed Approach: We're All In!

https://www.ieca.org/images/surfacewater.gif
Description: The Iowa Flood Center (IFC) led the successful proposal development for the Iowa Watershed Approach for Urban and Rural Resilience (IWA) that brought $96,887,177 to the state of Iowa from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The IWA is working in nine watersheds across the state to help reduce flood impacts, improve water quality, and increase community flood resilience. The program represents a vision for Iowa's future that voluntarily engages urban and rural stakeholders throughout the watershed to work together to achieve common goals.

Underground Storage: More than Hiding Stormwater - Sponsored

This presentation will provide attendees with an increased knowledge of underground stormwater systems, benefits, and best practices. By beginning with a review of stormwater design and evolution over time, attendees will acquire a strong foundational understanding of overall stormwater management. The presentation will explore methods ranging from stone beds to proprietary products like arches and module boxes, while also providing attendees with information about unique applications and innovative ways to incorporate different underground systems into a design.
