Technical Design and Construction for Construction Field Personnel

This pre-recorded webinar is designed to give field construction personnel a basic understanding of the Best Management Practices that are commonly used to control and reduce erosion and sedimentation from storm water runoff on construction sites. The proper use and placement of BMPs, along with the critical details of construction will be presented. In addition, the webinar will address the administrative aspects of the NPDES (and state issued) permit process that must be performed in the field. These processes include proper inspection and record keeping, and maintenance and control of documents that are required to be kept on site. This webinar is targeted to all levels of field personnel expertise. Junior level field mangers will derive a basic knowledge of the NPDES requirements, while more experienced field managers will receive instruction that will allow them to better analyze the erosion and sedimentation control design for a project and make them a more effective “last check” on each project’s compliance with the DPDES, or state issued permit.

Techniques for Effective Beach & Shoreline Stabilization - Part Two

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.

Techniques for Effective Beach & Shoreline Stabilization • Part One

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.

Testing and Specifying Rolled Erosion Control Products

This technical presentation will cover the testing and specifying of Rolled Erosion Control Products based on ASTM standardized test methods. This presentation will describe and recommend test methods that should be used to evaluate Rolled Erosion Control Products for quality, uniformity, and performance. In addition, data will be presented that correlates testing of material properties to field performance characteristics. Attendees will learn of the effort by the National Transportation Product Evaluation Program (NTPEP) to create a nationwide system of testing requirements for Rolled Erosion Control Products, and how this effort has created a knowledge base of data derived from standardized test methods that allows end users, manufacturers, and designers to determine which Rolled Erosion Control Product is appropriate for use on any given construction site.

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.

Understanding Industrial Stormwater Program Development

This webinar will draw on some of the best practices in the industry on how to setup a robust program from a centralized records system to a dedicated stormwater team. We will cover how to run an annual stormwater training program for facility staff, including general awareness training and specific stormwater team training. In addition, we will cover the risks associated with non-compliance including examples of poorly setup programs and the financial ramifications of enforcement actions and lawsuits. To keep your program in compliance, we will focus on one of the key Best Management Practices (BMPs), good housekeeping, used to ensure compliance with industrial stormwater permits.

Using TRM’s for High Performance Applications and Protection

Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs) have been used to protect the earth from erosion for many years. As technology advances we are able to replace many hard armor systems with soft armored systems that perform better and are much more environmentally friendly. High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats (HPTRM) are now being used in areas that experience extreme flow conditions and The Army Corps of Engineers is now using HPTRMs to protect their levee systems.
