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.
