"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.

Arid and Semiarid Soils: Characteristics and Challenges

Revegetation, reclamation, and mitigation become increasingly difficult as water becomes the most limiting factor for plant growth. These problems often are compounded in semiarid and arid regions by salinity, which further restricts plant growth, and sodicity, which destroys soil structure. The inability to establish surface vegetative cover exacerbates problems with both wind and water erosion. This presentation will address which soil and climate properties to evaluate to predict the success of revegetation efforts, and identify methods to address the specific management challenges encountered in working with arid and semiarid region soils.

Biotic Soil Amendments for Site Revegetation

Biotic Soil Amendments, BSA's, have become as cost effective way to successfully re-vegetate sites with poor soils. The erosion control is pretty good at preventing erosion when we do what we know we should, however we still fail all too often at the vegetation establishment goals. BSA's offer a cost effective way to jumpstart the soil building process at the time of seeding to ensure the site will be stable long term. This presentation explores the available BSA's and follows case studies of their effective use on challenging projects.

Erosion Control in Arid Climates

When constructing in arid environments erosion and sediment control is often overlooked. Emphasis is on dust control and wind borne erosion with erosion from water and runoff left as an after-thought all too often. In arid environments when a rain storm occurs contractors are left scrambling while being reactive and developers are left exposed to risk and unaccounted for costs. Learn how to successfully stabilize soils in areas with less than 10 inches of annual rainfall (on average), as well as how to establish vegetation in such extreme climatic conditions in a proactive manner.

From Trash to Treasure

White Island, an 80-acre former municipal landfill located in Brooklyn, New York, is one of the first grassland mitigation projects required by New York State. The former landfill was constructed on historic marsh land and exhibited severe shoreline erosion due to wave action and tidal flux. Additionally, over 80 percent of the island was dominated by invasive species. The project involved bioengineered shoreline stabilization, invasive species control, and grassland habitat creation. The project served as mitigation for the loss of 56 acres of maritime grassland habitat due to construction of a nearby Housing Development and Retail Center. The NYSDEC determined the loss of grassland habitat was a significant adverse impact on several bird species and the creation of new maritime grassland habitat on White Island was required as compensatory mitigation. The main objectives of the restoration design were to: œ Improve shoreline stability; œ Control invasive species; œ Create habitat for rare or special-status species; and œ Increase biodiversity. While traditional armoring could have been used, vegetative bioengineering stabilization practices were selected to provide a connective vegetated zone along the shore for wildlife use. The vegetation also provided a long-term and low maintenance solution for the island site. A combination of a cellular confinement system and articulated concrete blocks were used to provide additional stability while the plants were establishing. The design incorporated several vegetative zones to provide suitable diverse habitat for ground nesting avian species, while supporting habitat for other wildlife. The vegetative zones were designed to provide contiguous acres of suitable grasslands habitat, maximize edge diversity, provide shelter and control erosion. Over 150,000 cubic yards of sand was installed across the island surface to create a planting substrate free of invasive species for the colonization by a variety warm-season grasses. Immediately following construction, the east coast was struck by Superstorm Sandy. The lessons learned from this extreme testing of vegetated shoreline stabilization techniques will be discussed.

How to Write and Design Revegetation and Erosion Control Specifications

Specifications (Special Provisions) for revegetation and erosion control projects are often confusing, poorly written and organized, and an afterthought to large engineering projects. Costs associated with the work are often lump-summed under the bid schedule or if identified in line items are inconsistent with the specifications. This class will show how clear, well-written specifications benefit a project and how they are assembled. Elements of design will also be briefly addressed.

Improving Infiltration & Vegetation in Post-Cons

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.
