Changing the Development Paradigm to Embrace LID - Part One

The Problem with Conventional Development & Stormwater Management: This webinar will investigate and demonstrate the many impacts, associated with our current approach of prescriptive land use policies and stormwater management that have led to adverse impacts to our natural environment, particularly aquatic systems due to “the law of unintended consequences” of these policies. The webinar will also introduce attendees to the concept of Low Impact Development (LID) which is a paradigm shift in how development and stormwater is done to minimize the impacts of development on the natural environment. A history of LID will be provided as well as a discussion of how LID works and why it is a much better approach for land development projects. The Basis of Low Impact Development: In this webinar attendees will learn about the most important aspect of Low Impact Development (LID), Environmental Site Design (ESD). ESD is the cornerstone of the LID approach by evaluating the natural resources on the site and placing the development on the land which is most suitable for it. The natural environment provides many positive benefits especially related to the rainfall runoff relationship. These many benefits will be discussed and it will be demonstrated how the application of ESD for residential development can preserve many of these benefits, while at the same time mimic the natural hydrologic relationship for small, frequent rainfall events. The common hydrologic goals associated with LID will also be discussed and it will be shown how ESD can help a designer meet these goals. In addition to the hydrologic benefits of ESD, the preservation of woodlands and meadows also provide other environmental benefits such as the sequestering of carbon.

CISEC Module 2: Background of an Inspector

In this module, participants will learn the importance of what is recommended for an inspector's background and how this will help them keep a site in compliance with EPA requirements. In addition, participants will see how assessing past experiences will improve the inspection process.

CISEC Module 4: Conducting Construction Site Inspections

This module covers the basic duties of an inspector by conducting a “virtual” tour of a construction site. Participants will reinforce their role and responsibilities as inspectors to meet EPA Phase I and Phase II requirements. The module will include “hands-on” exercises on documenting, communicating, reading SWPPPs and S&EC plans, writing reports,interacting with fellow participants, and assessing what to look for on a construction site.

Construction Dewatering

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.

Construction Inspection Techniques that Really Work

This webinar is a welcome departure for traditional theory and speculation, it will consist of real world examples on how inspection techniques and programs can make a remarkable difference in construction site compliance. Participants in this course will be able to integrate several, concrete steps to change the condition of their existing projects to environmentally compliant, profitable projects. Take the time to refresh your set of skills on stormwater compliance, learn more profitable techniques, and experience lessons from project experience in several areas to bring back to your site. You will not be disappointed, this course is fast paced, filled with realistic tools, and designed with the end user benefits in mind.

Construction Site Erosion and Sediment Control: Best Practices and Low Impact Solutions

Often construction-phase and post-construction stormwater management are separate worlds (different permits, different plans, different practices, etc.); however, in terms of hydrology, water quality and the ultimate success or failure of post-construction practices, they are closely related. This webinar will briefly review stormwater regulations for construction and post-construction and will explain how hydrology is a unifying theme. The webinar will include state-of-the-practice details for common LID and GI practices and will focus on details that are important to pay attention to during construction for successful stormwater quality management for the long term.

Controlling Turbidity: Getting Flocculation to Work on Your Site

While the US EPA has withdrawn its proposed turbidity limit on construction site runoff, there are still many states have or are proposing their own enforcement levels. Construction site owners and managers are also looking for ways to avoid public outcry and potential lawsuits over muddy water leaving their site. In most cases, typical and even more advanced erosion and sediment control practices will not prevent discharges that look like chocolate milk. This two-part seminar will explore the principles behind chemical treatments to rapidly settle suspended solids and reduce turbidity in runoff from construction sites. In the second part, he will then go over a variety of methods to apply those principles to greatly reduce turbidity. After conducting research on this subject for over 10 years in both laboratory and active construction site setting, McLaughlin has a lot of data to back up his recommendations! He will wrap up with a discussion of suggested chain of command options to avoid failures.

Design of Infiltration Practices: Low Impact Development Tec

This course has been developed to provide participants with the technical training required to design Low Impact Development (LID) infiltration practices and guides them through the steps of the design process. The course is intended for developers, consultants, municipalities, landowners or anyone with a general understanding of LID, looking to enhance their knowledge and learn how to design LID infiltration based practices and the process required. This course is comprised of five modules that discuss the science of infiltration, infiltration best practices, conducting a site evaluation and field reconnaissance, creating a detailed design, and the operation and maintenance of LID infiltration practices.

Designing Effective Sediment Basins

This webinar will detail the various components and requirements to develop effective sediment basin designs. The webinar will provide an overview to “SEDspread”, a (FREE) user-friendly spreadsheet-based design tool for designers to appropriately size sediment basin parameters. The workbook allows users to input site specific parameters and constraints to determine: basin capacity and configuration, surface skimmer size and dewatering rate, auxiliary spillway design, and baffle configuration. The workbook includes a summary sheet that provides users with schematics of the designed basin, available as a supplement to facilitate effective communication between designers and contractors for constructing/installing the basin. Participants are encouraged to download the latest version of SEDspread prior to the webinar by visiting the Auburn University - Erosion and Sediment Control Testing Facility website at: http://www.eng.auburn.edu/research/centers/auesctf/tools/sedspread.html
