IECA Short Courses
These events are 3 hours in length and worth 3 Professional Development Hour (PDH)/0.3 CEU (Continuing Education Unit). They are either offered as a half day or part I/II training.
Explore the fundamentals of river system performance, their intricacies and dynamics, as well as fluvial geomorphology's theories and principals. This webinar not only will be helpful in understanding overall river behavior but will also be beneficial to people interested in river sedimentation, hydraulics, streambank erosion and protection and stream restoration.
These events are one hour in length and worth 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH)/0.1 CEU (Continuing Education Unit).
There are many terms used to describe the different varieties of erosion control products, like organic, natural, weed free, photodegradable and biodegradable. Many times the terms used to describe them are misunderstood. This presentation will define each of these terms and show you were the products should be used. * Sponsored webinars are free to IECA members. $15 for non-members.
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.
La presentación de este curso trata de reflejar un compendio de técnicas y materiales habitualmente empleados en obras de control de erosión, y restauración y conservación del paisaje, destinado a técnicos, licenciados e ingenieros que quieran tener una visión amplia de las posibilidades de desarrollo de este tipo de actuaciones complementarias a la construcción de las distintas obras de infraestructura, tal y como carreteras, líneas férreas, urbanizaciones, canalizaciones, encauzamientos, embalses, sellado de vertederos, canteras, etc.
This presentation will provide attendees with an increased knowledge of underground stormwater systems, benefits, and best practices. By beginning with a review of stormwater design and evolution over me, attendees will acquire a strong foundational understanding of overall stormwater management. The presentation will explore methods ranging from stone beds to proprietary products like arches and module boxes, while also providing attendees with information about unique applications and innovative ways to incorporate different underground systems into a design.*This presentation is free to IECA members.
Learn how to design LID treatment systems by understanding the critical role native soils, hydrologic conditions and position on the landscape factor into the design process. Understand the importance of the construction sequence for LID systems to ensure their long term functionality.
While monitoring and management of protected adjacent wetland features is a common condition of most anthropogenic activity approvals, no standard method for such work currently exists in Canada on a national (or provincial) level. Ecological monitoring methods often vary between sites depending on the preferred methods of the body conducting the work, and/or associated regulatory agencies. Consequently, the absence of standardization for ecological monitoring results in wide-ranging interpretation, development, implementation and quality of monitoring plans which in turn creates a “grey area” when it comes to consistency, compliance and accountability. What can you do to make sure you are working in compliance when there is no standard?
Sometimes traditional BMPs do not fit every scenario and can be more trouble than they're worth. In this fun presentation, we will discuss how the DuraWattle has been an innovative solution for multiple sediment control applications, including construction perimeter control, stockpile management (yes, hard surfaces too!), and even an extra MS4 DI defense. We will also show some examples of the proven performance, cost savings, and low maintenance properties of the DuraWattle. Bonus: We're giving away a prize to one of our attendees! (And it's more exciting than sediment control.) *This presentation is free to IECA members.
This technical presentation will discuss research results of large-scale testing efforts focused on developing technologies to provide improved performance of sediment basins. The study, conducted at the Auburn University - Erosion and Sediment Control Testing Facility (AU-ESCTF), includes the investigation of traditional and advanced passive treatment using a lamella-based high-rate settling plate system. Testing procedures, data collection, performance characteristics, and results of the study will be discussed.
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.
Cuando se construye en ambientes áridos la erosión y sedimentación son a menudo pasados por alto. Énfasis en control de polvo y erosióón eólica con erosión hídrica y escorrentía como última prioridad ocurre a menudo. En ambientes áridos cuando una tormenta ocurre los contratistas se encuentran sin mucho que hacer cuando reaccionan, mientras que los urbanizadores corren con los riesgos y enfrentan costos inesperados. Aprenda cómo estabilizar exitosamente suelos en áreas con menos de 250 mm de precipitación anual (en promedio), así como también cómo estabilizar vegetación en tales condiciones climáticas extremas.
Through the intentional management of communication and work, the Alabama Department of Transportation protected water quality and made history on an environmentally and politically sensitive highway project. Costs were reduced, safety was enhanced, quality was improved, production was increased, and sediment yield was reduced by over 99%. Impossible? Come See.
