"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.

Advanced Turbidity Treatment Systems

Advanced Treatment Systems or ATS has proven effective for turbidity control for several years. While all agencies are not in universal agreement on the elements of ATS or the regulations for the use of ATS this webinar introduces the required elements for successful monitoring and treatment of construction site runoff for both turbidity and pH control. ATS can involve chemical flocculation, electrocoagulation, filtration and gravity settling. This seminar will follow and build upon the flocculation presentations of Dr. Richard McLaughlin Ph.D. to incorporate the use of automated systems designed to monitor and treat Stormwater using automated chemical dosing and filtration systems to consistently treat construction site discharges to acceptable levels.

Applications of the High Definition Stream Survey

https://www.ieca.org/images/ErosionandSedimentControl.gif
Description: This is a live webinar presented by Brett Connell and James Parham, PhD. 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.

Changing the Development Paradigm to Embrace LID - Part 1

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.

Changing the Development Paradigm to Embrace LID - Part 2

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.

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.
