"It’s a Bird, it’s a Plane, it’s a Drone!": The Future of Site Inspections

This webinar will showcase current ongoing research focused on using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for conducting site inspections applications. The study, being conducted by Auburn University researchers, focuses on erosion and sediment control applications in construction. Participants will be exposed to UAV technologies to develop: project progression documentation, photogrammetric site visualization, highly detailed digital elevation models, and assessment of vegetation and crop health. Developed inspection methods, case study site assessments, and preliminary research findings and results will be discussed. The webinar will cover topics geared towards conducting inspections for construction, infrastructure, environmental, and agricultural applications.

2018 IECA State of the Industry

The 2018 IECA State of the Industry webinar will provide insight into the state of the International Erosion Control Association (IECA), a perspective on the industry shift to reducing environmental impact with biodegradable and reusable BMPs. This event will be moderated by Joanna Fetherolf, IECA’s Director of Education. With a membership of over 2,000 professionals, IECA is the foremost professional organization for the field of erosion and sediment control and stormwater management. IECA’s mission is to provide education, networking, and research for industry professionals. Samantha Roe, IOM, will provide an update from Thomas Schneider, CPESC, 2016 - 2019 IECA Board of Directors President, on the International Erosion Control Association’s key accomplishments and the direction IECA has been moving over the past few years. She will also provide an update from IECA Board of Directors President-Elect, Adam Dibble, CPESC-IT, CESSWI on key initiatives of the Board of Directors as we move into 2019. Roe will provide an update on areas of focus for the growth and support of membership and our industry. Dave Jenkins, Erosion Control/Stormwater Engineer, Port of Seattle. Dave will give a perspective on the environmental impact of your project. Silt fence fabric sent to the landfill; erosion products shipped thousands of miles to your project; products used once and thrown away. While trying to reduce the environmental impact of your project are you creating other, possibly greater impacts? The erosion control industry has evolved such that it’s possible to design and construct projects that utilize 100% biodegradable, recyclable, pre-cycled and reusable best management practices, reducing project impacts and increasing project sustainability. Greg Schaner, EPA, has worked as an attorney for EPA’s Office of Water since 2003. He has focused primarily on the NPDES stormwater program, including work on EPA’s CGP, MSGP, and the MS4 program. Prior to EPA, Greg worked for the State of Maryland, the National Association of Clean Water Agencies, and as an EPA contractor for SAIC. Greg received a BA from Colgate University, a graduate degree in environmental management from Duke University, and a JD at the Univ. of Maryland’s night law school. Greg has 3 children, ages 15, 9, and 3. Emily Halter, EPA, is an economist with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in the Office of Wastewater Management. Emily leads the construction and industrial stormwater programs at EPA Headquarters in Washington, DC. She holds an MA in environmental policy from the George Washington University and a BA in economics from Virginia Tech. The presentation will be followed by a question/answer session so you will have an opportunity to engage with the panel of experts to get your questions answered.

A Different Way of Looking at Sediment Control on Constructi

Has your BMP failed and you don't know why? Do you feel like you are checking off the BMP box without a full grasp of the science behind the BMP placement? This course discusses the effects of stormwater runoff volume and rates on the performance of temporary sediment control BMPs on construction site. Many times, it is determined that the BMP was the cause of a failure. In reality, the BMP failure was caused by stormwater runoff in excess of the BMPs capacity, this failure could have been identified during the design process. This course will look at topography, soil type and geographic location and how you can use this information to predict the effectiveness of design for your construction site.

After the Wildfire - Hydrologic and Water Quality Effects of

This webinar will present information on the hydrologic and sediment transport effects of wildfires. The presenters will draw on experiences with post fire hydrology from wildfires including the Cerro Grande Wildfire that caused heightened flood risk for a nuclear facility at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and the Missionary Ridge, Fourmile, Black Forest, and Waldo Canyon Wildfires in Colorado. The webinar will present the science behind hydrologic changes from wildfire and will provide examples of tools and methods that can be used to quantify changes to peak discharges, runoff volume, and sediment yield in a risk-based context.

Applications of the High Definition Stream Survey

The High Definition Stream Survey (HDSS) approach was created to rapidly gather continuous geo-referenced data in a single pass for a broad range of stream and streambank conditions by integrating GPS, video, depth, water quality and other sensors. Results from HDSS data can be used to prioritize and locate areas of high erosion, determine the extent and distribution of instream habitat, locate areas that contribute to poor stream conditions, define the geomorphic condition for the stream, document restoration results and provide a powerful "virtual tour" experience. Trutta Environmental Solutions recently surveyed over 120 miles of the Duck River, TN in only eight days which also included over 100 cross sections to prove in depth bathymetric measurements for the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.

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.
