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.

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

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. Part two of a two module course about Native Plant Establishment. In this second module the focus is on addressing the importance of seeding and planting methods, and soil amending, as well as post planting monitoring. This part of the course will help participants identify and understand how to address various problem soils that are commonly encountered. In addition, monitoring methods are discussed and participants will learn how to prepare a monitoring plan suitable for most jurisdictions. Part Two is taught by the same experienced restoration ecologist with over 35 years’ experience, and countless projects, some of them award winning, as Part One. The course is suitable for beginners to experts, and all will find something of value in the information provided.

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 REVISED UNIVERSAL SOIL LOSS EQUATION (RUSLE) Version 2 - Part One

This is the first of a three part series on RUSLE Version 2. In this first module, we’ll be taking a look at the Essentials of Soil Loss Prediction. At the end of the module you’ll be able to define soil erosion and the types of soil erosion, as well as have a good understanding of the erosion process and why soilerosion is a concern. This understanding will be supported by a brief history of the prediction model and use of the erosion predictive tool. To access RUSLE2 please visit the NRCS RUSLE2 website(http://fargo.nserl.purdue.edu/RUSLE2_ftp/RUSLE2_Program_File/ ) since it also has the climate and soils data for the entire US and territories in other folders on this site. The installer file to download is: “Rusle2InstallerNRCS(2.5.2.11)b2014” This version is subject to updating from time to time, but this version is fairly current from August of 2014. The RUSLE2 installer comes with the base database for agriculture, but does have one user screen template for construction sites. Of course, you don’t get all the custom database or screen and printing enhancements for construction sites. If you are interested in full RUSLE2 training sessions please contact IECA Education at education@ieca.org or 303-640-7554. Thank You!

The REVISED UNIVERSAL SOIL LOSS EQUATION (RUSLE) Version 2 - Part One, Two & Three

In the first of a three part series on RUSLE Version 2. In this first module, we’ll be taking a look at the Essentials of Soil Loss Prediction. At the end of the module you’ll be able to define soil erosion and the types of soil erosion, as well as have a good understanding of the erosion process and why soilerosion is a concern. This understanding will be supported by a brief history of the prediction model and use of the erosion predictive tool. In the second of a three part series of the RUSLE Version 2. In this second module, we will look at the background for developing the RUSLE 2 model and how to apply it for plant development and land use. Also addressed are each factor within the equation and how to use RUSLE 2 as a planning tool. In the third of a three part series of the RUSLE Version 2. In this third and final module we explore the databases behind the model and show how RUSLE 2 software produces soil erosion estimates. Also covered in this module is everything from how the databases are organized to demonstrating the software with examples from real field data. To access RUSLE2 please visit the NRCS RUSLE2 website(http://fargo.nserl.purdue.edu/RUSLE2_ftp/RUSLE2_Program_File/ ) since it also has the climate and soils data for the entire US and territories in other folders on this site.

Tillage as a Stormwater Practice

Soils are often a neglected part of stormwater planning, although they can be a big asset. Post-construction soils are commonly in poor physical condition with little fertility to grow grass or other plants. In this webinar, we will discuss ways to assess soil condition and methods to create the environment for reduced runoff and enhanced plant growth.
